  1. Roy's weekly ramblings: 25th to 31st August. Goodbye to summer?

    As Monday was a Bank Holiday and as expected it was a complete wash out. I have fished on many rainy days but I cannot think of a day worse for rain than Monday 25th August was.... It took me two days to dry everything out. The rabbits complained, with the lovely Bernadine about the musty smell too. Personally I though it came from some old bank notes?
    I was at the sell out Bank Holiday open at Lake John on the top lake and with the gates locked there was no going home early either! Colin ...

  2. Marsh AC Colemans Cottage 30 08 14

    It seems an eternity since both Mick and I went fishing together. A change of shifts meant we rarely get to go head to head in our own personal duel, the coveted MK Nugget. However with us both on annual leave, it was on. Mick was chauffeur for the relatively short trip around the M25 to Colemans Cottage and Pathfield Lake.

    We had not fished on here for a few years and both of us have suffered mixed results, but today is a new day. We arrived nice and early and dived into a full ...

  3. Alders Farm Oaks Lake 26 08 14

    For once the weathermen have got it right, on Monday they predicted rain and lots of it and although it was scheduled to run into Tuesday I was hopeful that it would have stopped before going fishing. I was wrong and they were right, it was still raining as I drove to Alders Farm for the affordable open. Today was on the Specimen lake (Oaks).We had fished it last week and I managed my first 100lb weight from it and still came fifth. There are plenty of small carp in the 8oz to 2lb mark and if you ...

  4. Roy's weekly ramblings: 20th to 23rd August

    A slightly earlier blog written today: It is a no fishing day as I am helping the lovely Bernadine later. Permission has been given for me to fish the Bank Holiday open at Lake John tomorrow. However with a rain sodden day forecasted I am in doubt about my sanity...
    I was back at Lake John on the top lake on Wednesday 20th and with a near full house I drew a flyer and Golden Peg too. This peg is on the back bank, but an end peg which has been producing framing weights most weeks.
    Rumour ...

  5. Alders Farm Ash Lake Challenge Match 23 08 14

    Saturdays are my football days, not playing but sitting in front of the telly watching. However I had promised Trevor I would help out with the shop and assist Terry Lancaster whilst he fished a match arranged by Colin Fossey against Apollo Sonu-baits Banstead. True to my word I arrived nice and early as it can be a bit manic on match days with everyone wanting pellet and maggots. However the first words out of Trev's mouth was do you want to fish today, we are one short. So back in the car to home, ...
