Kennet and Avon

Peg B8
10lb 12oz
Won section  (26 in section)
4th overall
108 people fished the match

Final round of the Spring league on Kennet and Avon Canal.  Drew B8, an end peg at Churches, the right of the swing bridge.  Theres 6 end pegs in our section......

Lovely days fishing, spent too long looking for skimmers

Firstly thanks to Paz ( my team mate) drawing me flyer.  The pressue is now on with drawing an end peg.

I mainly caught on pinkies on the three quarter line.   Felt I should of done better.  Couldn't catch them famous skimmers.... just won my spilt 8 peg section and the big 26 peg section only by a few ounces.

Heronbrook- MAM

Peg 17 Match Pool
75lb
Won section
91 fished

I wish Heronbrook was closer, so another early start this morning.  Hoping to draw Match Lake, but draw Match Pool, a lake that i have never fished.

There was only ten of us fishing the lake, so we had plenty of room, however two end pegs in the section and two decent anglers on each one, this going to be difficult to qualify.....

I decided to go all out pellet attack and maggots and mirco pellets down the edge.  I had a fanastic start, the first forty mintues was really good, mainly caught carp on 6mm Marukyu JPZ at 14 meters on the "mud line".   I toss potted all my feed, and when bites faded, i loose feed pellets to encourage more fish into my peg, i felt this wasnt right, to begin with, but muscled through it and the peg did come back and i did have a furly of fish on the "mong" which was mega for 10 mintues.

I felt i was beat by Mr Llyod off the next peg, and even offered a £20 side bet, that he beat me..... glad now he didn't take it.... he caught way more fish than me, but loads smaller.

Kennet and Avon Canal. Round 3.

Peg D26
2lb 7oz
11 points out of 27
No good

The third round of our spring canal league, i was depressed after my first round, got lucky on second round and third???

Unfortunately, are team is struggling a little in the league and the area i draw, i felt i could catch skimmers and with Richard Chave drawing end peg, i felt i would need double figures to get good points.  How wrong was i.

Alvechurch- Horseshoe

Peg 26
95lb
Won match
14 fished

Ain't been to Alvechurch since my disappointing winter league.  So was looking forward to catching some fish hopefully..... drew peg 26, which i thought was further down the lake, but i was on the point.  So good draw.

Caught well on my worm mix, see Liam's video.....

I find myself proper struggling and caught a few on paste at 5 meters.

Lovely "silvers" at Horseshoe Lake

Weights are tight.

Fish O Mania- Larford Lakes


  • Peg 9 match lake
  • 57lb
  • No good
  • 110 ish fished the match
I can't remember last time i went to Larford Lakes.  So was looking forward to it, looking at peoples Facebook reports it was fishing awesome in places.  Looking at the reports you wanted an end peg on Specimen Lake to stand a chance.

However, I was wrong, and Richie Hull won it on peg 2 on Match Lake with 155lb.
