  • Bristol Docks Evening Series

    Winter seems well and truly behind us now and spring is here, saw my first swallow of the year yesterday and a family of mallard ducklings, and the fishing has got a lot better, even the recent easterlies didn't put the fish off. Thursdays night match was fished at Redcliffe...
  • Bristol Docks Evening Match

    This weeks match was fished at Redcliffe Wharf, the pegs are to the left of the 'Ostrich', fishing into the main dock and the fishing was the best it has been for a very long time. The weather was very windy and the water was coloured, perfect conditions for the...
  • Bait Tech Festival, Whiteacres

    The first festival of the year is always something to always look forward to, the long hard winter is behind us and with longer, warmer days and good fishing ahead it is the start of summer for me. My rotation saw me on Pollawyn for the first day and I...
  • Gold Valley Midweek Open

    This was my first trip back to Gold after a two week break and how things have changed in that time, the first thing I noticed was how much more colour there was in the water and there was a lot more surface activity. For me March is a month...
  • Sensas Challenge Final, River Soar Loughborough

    Saturday I fished the teams of four league on the Basingstoke Canal at Ash Vale, I was standing in for Will, who was over in Poland working for Daiwa. The past three years I have always fished this league and the fishing has been excellent, the first year I fished...
  • Gold Valley Silverfish Festival - 2 days

    This was fished Thursday and Friday, no bloodworm and joker, carp don't count and the winner would be decided on total weight over the two days, everyone was pegged on Gold Lake. The weather was similar to what it has been all week, cold, cold and very cold, with winds...
  • How Things Change in a Week

    Last week I was catching loads of fish, the recent icy blast has really 'chilled' the fishing. On Wednesday, I fished the mid week open at Gold Valley, the weather was warm enough for January but the weather forecast was for strong winds with even stronger 'gusts'. Despite the forecast...
