  1. Roy's weekly ramblings: 20th to 24th May

    Happy Bank Holiday to all!
    Lake John on Wednesday 20th looked perfect for fishing and this week there was no live sex show either! My run of un-fancied pegs continued with me drawing peg 8 on the right hand bank. Pegs 10 to 14 have been in form for weeks and I expected to catch as per the last few weeks lots of small fish: however.......
    I started fishing at 5m just into the deeper water using corn on the hook over a bed of GOT Micros and 4mm pellets. There a few bream fell ...

  2. Viaduct May 2015

    Saturday 09 05 15

    An early start enabled us to meet Vic in Buckingham, who would follow us down. Pete and Troy were coming down later, but we had arranged to meet Del at a service station at Amesbury for breakfast. After a full English and a couple of cups of tea we were off to the venue. We could not get the keys until 4pm, so a nice relaxing couple of hours were spent on Lodge Lake where we would catch plenty of skimmers and a few nice carp. With both Mick and Del getting so good ...

  3. Roy's weekly ramblings: 13th to 17th May 2015

    With my pond building duties nearly complete (making the lovely Bernadine happy), I sneaked out to fish the Wednesday open at Lake John on the Top Lake on Wednesday 13th May. I have been building a larger pond for some of our outdoor fish who have grown too big for their original home, which was completed this week. All that is needed now is some fish, not from local venues (vicious rumors) and after the water has settled down for a couple of weeks.
    On the 13th I drew peg 39 which has not ...

  4. Roy's weekly ramblings: 6th to 10th May 2015. In a hurriance?

    My first foray to report on was to Lake John on the Wednesday open but this week the weather had gone mad.
    It had rained all night and there was a very strong southerly gale howling up the lake. The pegging was made to give as many people as possible shelter, but some pegs were still very difficult to fish. The whole of the back bank was relatively calm, but the further away from it the worse it was. I drew peg 14, a splendid peg but it had a strong side wind from right to left. The ...

  5. Peartree Lake HLF 02 05 15 Marsh AC

    Unfortunately this year I will be unable to fish all of the Marsh AC matches due to other commitments, so for this year I have asked if I can guest on the odd match that I am available for. The first of which was at Hartleylands Farm on Peartree Lake. I have never fished this lake on the complex before and had very little information to go on, but knew that Hartleylands responds to pellet, so armed myself with a mix of 4 and 6mm sinkers with a few 8mm hookers. I also prepared some 6mm expanders ...
