  1. Solihull Angling Silvers - Final Round

    On arrival at the fishing lodge and seeing the latest results sheet I was surprised to see I was lying in 3rd place, all be level on points with several other anglers on 4 points with a slight weight advantage. First place is already spoken for as Kevin Fowell as maximum points with 3 section wins and can not be challenged. So it's any one from the next twelve anglers that can fill the remaining five framing positions.

    So no pressure today I simply have to score very low as this result ...

  2. White Acres Veterans Festival - 3rd and 4th day.

    For the 3rd round I was to draw Jenny's peg 17 not a bad draw but it would depend what seasoned angler had drawn the favoured peg 16. I had a plan today to fish the corn at a distance (30 metres) first on the bomb and then switching to the waggler. If this fails I would fish pole at 14metres with worm on deck.

    All in and Kevin Acton on peg 16 was soon into a couple of Carassio (more silver than an F1). It took me 10 mins to catch my first and then nothing for the next 20 mins. so ...

  3. White Acres Veterans Festival - day 1 and 2

    i just had to write another winter blog not so because of the fishing but more because I've never seen Cornwall so cold. I really thought I'd see the back of winter fishing and was looking forward to "sunny Cornwall" yeah right.

    Two days practicing at the weekend in bitterly cold wind reminded me of 3 months I'd just had at Packington with hands so cold you couldn't put a bait on the hook. Then to top it all off we get a good dump of the white stuff just in time for the ...

  4. Solihull Angling Silvers - round 3

    Due to the Beast from the East delaying my trip down to Cornwall I decided to get a stand-in for this penultimate round in the silvers league. This was the only small window that I could get down to White Acres to open up the caravan from its winter slumber, it also allowed me to take a look around the lakes and check out the improvements taking place..........roll on the Veterans Festival next Monday.

    Anyway back to this 3rd round - after my 2nd in section last time out I needed ...

  5. PWL Final Round

    Decision made by the gaffer yesterday this final round was going ahead and 41 brave souls turned out in the snow and ice. The staff had done their best yesterday to clear as many pegs as possible of thick ice, unfortunately there was still ice breaking to do for some, whilst others like me were fortunate enough to have some clear water in front of them.

  6. Solihull Angling Silvers - 2nd round.

    Another extremely cold night and the thought of breaking ice had me considering Staying in bed, especially as an attack of the Gout in my wrist had me awake most the night popping pills to get rid of the niggling pain.

    By 8am the pain killers were taking effect so I decided to go along for the draw at least and make my decision once I knew the peg I'd draw. As it was I drew on the high bank peg 11 which was a good area for the skimmers. So I decided to give it ago but leave the pole ...

  7. PWL Penultimate Round.

    Geary's Level was my rotation for this 9th and penultimate round, a venue always capable of throwing up a few big Carp. I can no longer frame due to some poor and very average results, so my aim was to fish positive for Carp and hope enough have a go to record 40+lbs.

    I fancied pegs 31 and 33 which would suit my style and plan, so I was over the moon to pull out 33. My peg looked inviting with lots of colour and a slight over the shoulder breeze. Whilst tackling up I scanned the surface ...

  8. Solihull Angling Silvers League Rd 1

    Venue: Packington - Geary's Level.

    I was really looking forward to this short series of just four matches with best three results to count, and coming off the back of a runners up spot last year my confidence was high. However I didn't know what to expect as I haven't fished this lake since November and like most of the lakes here it's been fishing very hard due to the low water temperature's of recent weeks. Today was no different a bitterly cold wind was blowing across the lake ...

  9. PWL Rd 8

    My rotation for round 8 sees me on Little Geary's, so an all out attack for F1s assuming I draw the right peg. Before the match I said I wanted peg 29 but would also be happy with 27, 7, 9 and 5. Any other and I would consider going home and back to bed where I'd been for the last 36 hours with Man Flu.

    I was almost last to draw and when I pulled out the disc I was delighted to see peg 29 in my hand.......no excuses now I'd drawn sock on and going by recent match results on the midweek ...

  10. PWL Rd 7

    That's confirmed it I'm officially mad - I must be to go out both days in this weather.

    Yesterday's open match saw just 7 crazy anglers turn up to brave the predicted elements and yes I was one of them, although I nearly turned back home several times before settling down in the warmth of the fishing lodge - the whole idea of venturing out on Saturday was to get some last minute practice on Molands ahead of today's Winter League, however because 97% of Molands was frozen the Seven ...
