  • 80% of the Fish in 20% of the Pegs

  • Gloucester Canal, International Rules Match

    Spring came early for this match, a sunny day, very little wind and an air temperature of 12 degrees or more meant a lot of anglers fished in a tee shirt all day.The previous weekend the CIPS practice match on the saturday was won with 24lb on the pole and...

    Thursday evenings match was moved to a different area of the docks, Welsh Back, this was the first time this area of docks has seen bait for 10 months, so nobody was expecting 'brilliant' results.The same 'hardy' 12 anglers fish every week, even when a couple of weeks ago when...
  • Daves Dozen, Bristol Docks 16/2/12

    Thursdays evening match, was the best for a long time, now that the cold weather appears to be behind us 'fingers crossed'. This match was fished on the Mud Dock and Police Launch reaches.The docks were a nice colour, the air temperature was 'almost' mild and the wind was gentle...

  • Daves Dozen Bristol Docks 9/2/12

    Thursday nights match was bitterly cold, the water was gin clear and it snowed quite a bit, but the usual names braved the worst conditions of the year and caught a few fish while most people were tucked up in front the fire watching the telly, real anglers.The match was...
  • Daves Dozen Bristol Docks 2/2/12

    Brhhh, it was bl**dy cold last night, with temperatures down to minus 6 the docks fished surprisingly well. The 14-15ft deep water seems to be less affected by the cold and the skimmers continued to feed.Top rod last night was the legendary Pete Sivell, first win for a long time...
