  1. Roy's weekly ramblings: 1st to 5th July fishing in 98 degrees F

    What a scorcher Wednesday 1st July was. The sun shone and the wind was warm resulting in the hottest July day on record. No doubt the doom and gloom brigade will say itís Global Warming, but they would say that about any freak weather.
    I was at my usual Wednesday haunt Lake John and on peg 18. This peg is not often used as this end of the lake is the shallowest part. However peg 16 has come second on the last two weeks and John Nipress won the section of peg 18 last week with nearly ...

  2. Roy's weekly ramblings: 24th to 28th June watching TV being made!

    On Tuesday I had a day of nothing special to do, which was a real treat for me and as the Lovely Bernadine went to Get Fit I had to amuse myself! A leisurely breakfast was followed by a trip to Alders Farm where I sat and watched the Tuesday affordable open for a while before I had a nose at the GOT Baits production line. Trevor and Mark Quick were busy filling bottles of very smelly bait additives from which I managed to borrow some glug for myself. The Lovely Bernadine and our two rabbits hate ...

  3. Roy's weekly ramblings: 17th to 21st June and a 1. 2. 3....

    I am becoming a creature of habit of late returning to fish the same venues and like Groundhog Day my first two trips this week were to my regular haunts.
    I started the fishing week at Lake John on Wednesday on the top lake where I drew the far back bank again and this week the wind was blowing away from this area back to the car park. My peg was flat calm making me not very confident and as it was a near full house any empty peg was a bonus to be next too. I was on peg 29 ...

    There used to be something special about the 16th June. You had an air of anticipation and hope for the first day of the season. You had been preparing baits and getting your kit together in readiness, nowadays, it seems to have fallen to the wayside. I know a lot of people who still look forward to the date, but have given up on the rivers and canals a long time ago, preferring to fish commercials and lakes. I am one of those, but still look forward to the odd session on a river and I hope to plan ...

  5. Roy's weekly ramblings: 10th to 14th June

    This week was a tale of far too many lost fish. I know why but I could not rectify things which left me rather frustrated this week.
    To start with I was back at Lake John on Wednesday 10th June on the top lake for the regular weekday match. There have been some suggestions that I draw flyers on this lake every week. Today this was not true as I drew peg 28 in the middle of the back bank, a peg with no current form.
    Paul Witford drew the form peg 26 on his maiden match on this ...
