  1. Alders Farm Ash Lake 28 07 15

    Back at Alders today for the Cheap Tuesday Open on Ash Lake. I had fished it on Sunday and was looking forward to it. The lake had fished well in the league match and with the weather improving all the time, I expected it to fish well.

    There was another match planned on pegs 1-8 so the café bank was out, but with the wind blowing into the corner of 13 we decided to fish from peg 12 along the dam wall and across the top leaving the shallows for someone who requested a coaching session ...

  2. Alders Farm league Match 26 07 15

    Work commitments, club matches or league matches normally mean no fishing at weekends unless I have to travel to Kent or Essex for the Marsh matches. However, due to Terry Lancaster having to pull out of the league match at Alders to fish a match at Meadowlands, I was able to have a dabble against the big boys. The league match was a teams of three event, and I was partnered by Richard Brain and Del Smith. The weather was not too good though, rain, rain and yet more rain was predicted.

  3. Roy's weekly ramblings: 22nd to 26th July. Has winter come already?

    I got soaked today at Lake John on the top lake. My new Drennan waterproof coat did the business and kept the top half of me dry. But what a woeful wet, cold and windy July day it was.... It was more like December than July today!

  4. Roy's weekly ramblings: 15th to 19th July

    I am getting a bit stuck in Groundhog Day mode at the moment fishing at Lake John on most Wednesdays. However the fishing here has been so good and with it possible to frame off most pegs it has been worthwhile being able to go there.
    This week I drew on the back bank, slap in the middle of it and I thought I was in for a tough days fishing. I set up my usual top two rigs and started fishing at 5m feeding lots of GOT Micro pellets and using corn on the hook. Small bream were ...

  5. Roy's weekly ramblings: 8th to 12th July

    This week it was not as hot as the week beforehand at Lake John on 8th July. In fact waterproofs were needed, if I could get them on during the rain!
    I drew peg 36 on the left hand bank which is a good island peg. I was prepared this week as I had my feeder rod all ready, but in the end it was not needed. I set up to fish a top two and two sections to capture bream at 5m and this week there was a keen breeze blowing from left to right. Dennis Lipscombe on peg 38 was his usual quiet ...
