Revels Fishery – Open – 22nd March 2022

My third match in four days and another 6:00 alarm meant I was starting to flag a bit but a cracking breakfast at the Airfield Tavern soon sorted me out and even better it was looking like being a gorgeous day. I was soon pulling into the car park at the fishery and there was another great turnout of 18 anglers fishing

Summerhayes – Open – 20th March 2022

Part two of my weekend double header was at Summerhayes and we were on Longs this time. There was a decent turnout for this one with 16 anglers fishing including Chris ‘Gappy’ Parr, Paul Purchase and Steve Jackson along with all the usual suspects. Pete got the draw underway and when my name came out, peg 39 was my home for the

Landsend – Open – 19th March 2022

I’d only ever fished Landsend once, a long, long time ago, in fact I couldn’t even tell you which lake I was on! After seeing regular results on social media, it looked lovely with some cracking nets of silvers so I finally got my act together and booked in for one of their Saturday matches. I was awake before my alarm and

Revels Fishery – Open – 15th March 2022

After getting drawn a brilliant peg and having a lovely days silvers fishing last Tuesday, I was hoping for more of the same this week. The weather was a lot better too and I even saw some glimpses of that big orange thing in the sky. The obligatory pit stop in Yeovil for breakfast set me up nicely for the day and

Summerhayes – Open – 13th March 2022

With no Ilminster or Stoke matches this weekend, I booked into Summerhayes and Steve P, Nick and Jenny fancied it as well. Drew very kindly said he’d accommodate us for breakfast which was really nice of him. It was on Sellicks and the weather looked like being awful again, to make matters worse, the Tart had been in touch to say he

Revels Fishery – Open – 8th March 2022

I was back at Revels for another Tuesday open and I could get used to fishing regular mid week matches, it’s just a shame work gets in the way! The usual stop off for food in Yeovil which was really nice before heading to the fishery. I picked up some bait from the shop and the car park was pretty busy this

River Isle – Barney’s Pairs Open – 6th March 2022

Barney’s Pairs is a match I’m always keen to do well in, we’ve fished it on various venue combinations over the years, the last time in 2020 (we didn’t fish it last year due to Covid) it was on Hebditch’s and Dillington. This year Rob put us on the Isle and Dillington and with the river fishing quite patchily, my partner, Terry

Revels Fishery – Open – 1st March 2022

I’ve been dying to get back down to Revels as I love fishing the matches there, so with some leave left that I had to use up, I booked a few Tuesdays off. Steve P said he’d come and we met in Yeovil for breakfast which was really good, hopefully the rest of the day would be equally as nice. We arrived

Private Pond – 27th February 2022

I always get excited about fishing somewhere new and when some of our club members had an invite to fish a fairly local lake, a fact finding match was organised. A few of the lads went to have a look and fished a pleasure session. I was expecting them to report it was mainly carp and although a few were landed, they

Summerhayes – Open/Knock-up – 20th February 2022

When I phoned Pete to book in for this one he said there were club bookings on both Longs and Sellicks so the match would be on Willow, not my favourite lake if I’m honest but it does hold some silvers. Once again the forecast was really grim and we were in for yet another wet and windy day. Things didn’t start
