Fishing In France – Baz Morgan – Part 3

My latest guest blog is part 3 of the Fishing in France series by Baz Morgan, what a brilliant looking venue!   Canal de la Dive For the purpose of this article I will deal with the section of canal that runs south of Breze, Epieds and Le Motte Bourbon, from here the canal runs north west to join the River Thouet


River Isle – V.E.S. Precision League 5 – 7th January 2018

With the river really high during the week I thought we’d be back on the pond again but not too much of the wet stuff as we approached the weekend and it started to look like we might actually get on the Isle. I popped down on Saturday and it looked lovely with a tinge of colour and pace although the forecast was for it


2017 Yearly Review

With 2017 disappearing in our rear view mirrors, here’s my look back over the previous twelve months, January 2017 We were on the Isle for New Years Day and I got just the start I wanted when I drew 106 but freezing rain and a cold wind made it very uncomfortable and I only had two sticklebacks! The other two at Redbridge struggled as


Summerhayes – Open – 7th May 2017

This weeks match was a rover on all ponds with the exception of Longs which was booked for a club match, so given that I hate Lily lake and have only fished Willow once, I would be a praying for a fairly early choice so I could pick one of the pegs on the far side of Sellicks, namely 15-21 although 11 or 13 have


Perry St Pond – Spring League 3 – 25th April 2010

With no hope of a corner peg for at least another three matches I really fancied pegs 6 or 7 but pulled out peg 9, which hasn’t had great form but the wind was blowing down towards pegs 10 and 11 and I thought I might get a few up in the water. Janders was across from me on peg 13 and


Chris’s Pond – 18th April 2010

Dave Lawrence picked me up at 7:00 and off we went, via Cartgate for a brekkie. There were only nine of us today and the pond looked really nice, Chris has given it a spring clean and got rid of lots of vegetation on the islands. I have struggled at the venue in the past and it’s mainly due to me chasing


Perry St Pond – Spring League 2 – 11th April 2010

Much better weather for this one and the day started brightly (pun intended) when the league’s sponsor, Chris Haines, gave us all Keenets sunglasses to cope with the extreme brightness of Bish’s seatbox! At least we would now all be able to concentrate on our floats.   Bish is pictured in the centre (red fleece) with his box and the anglers are


Perry St Pond – 4th April 2010

The weather was much better and there were even some blue patches in the sky and a big orange thing shining away! All I needed to do now was draw a corner peg! Les drew peg 10 and has now taken over Roy’s mantle as corner boy! I drew and opened my hand to reveal peg 11, a corner peg! I now


Perry St Pond – 2nd April 2010

There was a full house for the annual Good Friday match but conditions were awful with freezing cold rain pelting down and lots of rain during the night as well might well make the fishing hard. I was still praying for a corner peg though as loads of carp had been moving in pegs 10 and 11. Les announced the draw and


Perry St Pond – Spring League 1 – 28th March 2010

It was the first match of the ever popular Spring League and also my first visit for ages. I had heard it had been a little patchy because the weather was still so up and down but there were still carp to be caught and weights had been fairly reasonable. It was great to see loads of people I hadn’t seen since
