  1. Roy's weekly ramblings: 26th to 30th August including a monsoon!

    Wednesday 26th August was one of the wettest days fishing I have ever endured.
    It started raining at 09.00 and the deluge, accompanied with thunder and lightning finally abated at 15.50. I was absolutely soaked and my tackle once home stank the garage out for two days which annoyed our two rabbits who reside there...
    I drew peg 13 next to Mark Parris again, who this week was on peg 14. I spent the first half hour on the straight bomb and Tea Bag tight to the island. This ...

  2. Roy's weekly ramblings: 19th to 22nd August with me pictured with a nice pair...

    II arrived at Lake John on Wednesday 19th to be greeted with comments about my nice pair and that I look better in the flesh than in print. This completely flummoxed me as I did not have a clue what they were on about?
    All was revealed when I was finally told that my picture taken last week at Lake John by Colin from my win there had been printed in the Angling Times. What a handsome picture and yes I had a nice pair of bream in my hands too. The lovely Bernadine found out ...

  3. Roy's weekly ramblings: 12th to 16th August with me sitiing on three good pegs!

    I was back at Lake John this Wednesday the 12th for the regular open and this week it was a near full house and I was very pleased when peg 33 stuck to my hand at the draw. Colin Bartlett the owner claims that this is the best peg in the south of England.
    I ambled along to my peg and set up to fish one line at 6m, another line right by my feet and a final line to my left at 2m by the reeds. Nice and simple was my plan for the day. My feed was the usual copious amounts of dampened ...

  4. Roy's weekly ramblings: 6th to 9th August good and bad times....

    This week on the Wednesday I went with the lovely Bernadine and helped her with her jewellery stall at Croxley Green Vintage Car show. The forecast was for lots of rain later that day so for most of the day I was on weather watch to ensure all her goods kept dry. So there was no fishing for me at Lake John on the top lake this week. I did hear it had fished very well again with Mark Parris winning with 132lb off peg 30.
    The rain did keep away until 18.00 and over 1000 cars were in attendance, ...

  5. Alders Farm 04 08 15

    It seems like ages since I mentioned the MK Nugget matches, mainly due to circumstances beyond our control, but both Mick and I were booked into the Tuesday Open at Alders Farm. We would also have a good turnout with 17 anglers booked in. Trevor was busy preparing orders for shipment but would fish. A welcome sight was Mark Quick fishing again, he spends a lot of time at Alders yet rarely get his gear out. All the usual suspects were there but also some faces I had not seen before. Lads from Dunstable ...
