  1. Roy's weekly ramblings: Into spring on 25th Feb to 1st March

    We had a very welcome glimpse of spring on Wednesday 25th when I returned back to Lake John and fished the regular Wednesday open there. This was my first weekday match here since last Autumn and as soon as I decamped from Fabio I bumped into Paul Solen who welcomed me and then told me it was not warm enough for me to catch carp and bream on the inside line yet!
    There were 19 of us and I drew on the right hand bank, peg 11 which has a feeder option to the island. I set up to fish ...

  2. Roy's weekly ramblings: 19th to 22nd Feb.

    After having a few beers on my birthday on the 17th, which the lovely Bernadine arranged for me, with food and with some of our cronies some fresh air was needed. So on Thursday 19th I escaped to fish the open match at Magic Lakes.
    The day started with some sun and a gentle breeze however we were warned about a big low pressure system coming in, and the second half of the match was very wet and windy. Blowing straight into my handsome face!
    The fishing was poor, with me being ...

  3. Roy's weekly ramblings: 12th to 15th February

    After a couple of weeks of proper winter weather this week has seen a gradual increase in the air temperature, however as it takes a lot long for the water to warm the fish appear to be very tightly shoaled up.
    My fishing week began with a trip up to Oakfield for the Wednesday open and there I drew a decent peg number 20. I set up to fish a straight bomb with either hair rigged bread or corn as the hook bait and a couple of pole lines. One pole line was at 14m straight in front of ...

  4. Alders Pine Lake 10 02 15

    It has been an absolute age since I decided to go fishing. The freezing conditions did not help and I have spent an awful lot of time reading other people's blog's and not writing any of my own. In fact, my gear has been sat in a corner for two month's and has not been touched. I dreaded to think that the couple of pints of maggot and a bait box full of corn were still in the bag but at least I remembered to clear them before my sabbatical.

    I had booked into the open at Alders Farm ...

  5. Roy's week ramblings: 7th and 8th February

    What a shock it was arriving back into Gatwick Airport Friday at 19.00. When we left two weeks prior it had been minus 7c leaving home at 4am and I hoped it would be warmer on our return. The lovely Bernadine still does not believe that there are two 4 clock's in one day either!
    I had treated us to two weeks in the sun in the Canaries and Morocco, but locals in Tenerife were wearing scarves and hats, complaining about the cold. It was only 17c some days, perhaps they should ...
