Summerlane eve sweep rnd 6 ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Going in to this match I was top of the league but it was close behind with Thorney one point behind and Chris zsacks just behind him. 
This was before the match as u can see I was raring to go ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ that’s Wayne staples in the back ground with his mrs top on ๐Ÿ˜œ anyway a good draw was needed fancied 6 7 or 8 and was not dissatisfied when 2nd from last I pulled peg 7 it’s a good area with usually a few skimmers around !!!! Plan was worm over gb at 13 m expander over micros same range but at 2 o clock and a meat line as left over from viaduct the meat line I fed heavy to attract carp really hopefully keep them away from my other lines I only looked on it ones to no avail. At the all in I fed my lines and chucked the method out for 30 mins had a few liners missed one then had one on only for it to come off at the net ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก Thorney went off like a rocket on 10 but he wasn’t in my section so didn’t really care so pole time now could see fizzing on the Gb now small bit of worm on the hook with a white caster and it buried straight away small skimmer lovely then a bootlace and then started bumping fish but think it was scatty roach๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑbut then I got my head down and started to get the odd skimmer to two pound lovely I kept holding them up for my Australian pal Sam gooday Johnson over on 2 who was in my section ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ just to let him know ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž anyway it wasn’t hectic just the odd fish till the end really I just hoped I done enough for the section ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž Sam had 9 pound in peg 2 Ron had 3 pound in peg 4 and James red stone (20pounder) didn’t bother troubling the scales so as it turned out I pissed the section and match with 15.2 of skimmers 3 eels and a roach I hooked 3 carp throughout the evening so not too bad !!!!
Really enjoyed the series this year had some good draws but still gotta catch them we’ve had some wicked banter throughout with a great bunch of lads luckily enough I’ve finally won this series as I’ve been very close for the last 3 years and that man Thorney usually pips me at the final hurdle ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคชbut not this time !!!!! 
Big thanks to fishing tackle warehouse sonubaits and fox/matrix for sponsoring the event means a lot to us all everyone in the series picked up a prize ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Really enjoying my fishing at the minute win or lose and that’s what it’s all about ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ if anyone wants to do this series next year u have to buy a club tab which is 35£ a year so that’s basically peg fee for 6 matches and series is a £10 and £10 pools each match with optional golden peg which didn’t get won so is goin towards prizes for Xmas match !!! Thanks for reading the Weston club has a good following now and the matches are great ๐Ÿ‘

Psv viaduct Campbell

Well booked on this yesterday afternoon after getting thumbs up off the boss ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ I fancied 129 to 132 or 110 to 115 really into the draw 119 corner peg but wrong corner I thought!!!! 

Told myself before the match I’m gonna keep it simple but being the calamity that I am set up bomb rod pellet wag edge rig down to corner meat short pellet long deck and shallow after a few mins on the bomb that was boring could see fizzing long deck rig tried it but just liners and skimmer what fell off ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก out with the shallow rig to no avail slapping the granny out of it which is a bit foreign to me but I’m getting it slowly ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช๐Ÿคช!!!! Really struggling old happy bollox next door lee Waller was having a mare with foul hookers and what not !!!! But was beating me !! Had a look down edge took a 4 pounders but then nothing so went on bomb had 1 and then nothing๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ratted out by small roach and odd skimmers on the meat line so here’s my chance to get going at this slapping game got my head down and went for it started catching a few ๐Ÿ˜Ž like I been doing it years ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ had little spells of 2 or 3 fish varying from 3 pound to 13lb mugged a few also smashed a top kit lost rig elastic hole sha bang on another top kit ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑproper calamity!!! Happiness packed up early and I managed a few more but thought I had around 80 pound probably for knowhere ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ when the scales reached me I tipped 111.06 lb more than I thought !! I asked what’s winning so far he said me bargain but with the whole other side to weigh didn’t think I would get anything but the section but I just sneaked in behind Alan Healy who was 2nd with117 pound and big Ryan who won with 150 odd think if I wasn’t such a calamity today I shoulda woulda coulda had more but if buts and maybes I’ve had a nice day got me money back plus a bit and 3rd on the day keep on framing ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ thanks for reading summerlane finale tomorrow head to head me And the bagger Thorne for the prestige title ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚!!!!   Il prob mess that up too !!!!!

Summerhayes summerlane acorn 3in1

First up I been so busy and not really had time to write a blog. Anyway I booked on to summerhayes  short notice with the psv club who were on longs lake I’d quite fancied a visit as not been in a couple of years so I was in managed to get pagey and Simon on aswell. Had a few side bets lined up Adam Ryan Chris zsacks Alan Healy Simon and pagey wanted his fiver back so it was all to play for into the draw I pulled 2 out pagey said il have ine so he grabbed one then I asked if he wanted to swap so he did then we opened I had 32 he had 4 he wasn’t happy I’ve never drew that bank so wasn’t sure what to expect on arrival I was faced with 16m across and a bit over grown down edges with an empty peg either side I decided to chuck method around for an hour which was ok having 8 small carp in the first hour then losing a couple it died I’d fed some go and been pinging casters over it down the middle had 1 on it straight away then nothing kept trying my edges to no avail then it just proper died on all lines un deterred I upped the amount of caster I was throwing in and more regular ready for last two hours was just seeing signs of a few fish there and then it absolutely peed down for a good hour in that hour I caught nothing again๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข it absolutely killed my caster shallow line so went down edges nothing finished off with 3 or 4 on the caster shallow I think if it hadn’t of rained I would of had a solid 2 hours but it just wasn’t to be ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข whole lake had fished hard by the sound of things and the truth was told at the weigh in there was 2 weights of 40 odd pound a few 30s then me 29 pound what a strange day ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” was expecting to empty it as were most 
Never mind I paid my pounds out collected my diver off pagey and poundoff Simon and Adam !!!!
Onto the penultimate rnd of summerlane evening sweeps over all weight so a flyer was needed as I was sat joint top with Thorney and I wasn’t disappointed drew peg 1 

Plan was method to reeds and pole 12m down the left edge first hour went on tip only landing one small carp was just hoping my edge came good which thankfully it did as Thorney was on flyer 18 new I needed a few had a steady last 2 hours putting odd carp in the net a good skimmer and eel.
Walked the section and match with 61 pound but Thorney got second in section meaning he’s only 1 point behind me now ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ going into final rnd Monday silvers only 

So on to Thursday missed a couple of these and the fish haven’t been there usual selves but with only 11 or 12 on was hoping they would have it usual banter before the draw with the boys and I pulled peg 7 
I decided to chuck a mini method to corner of island first 10 mins had one and lost one fed my edges and caster top 6 but on first throw of caster there were fish there so spent 2hrs 45 mins on this pretty much getting one a bung I lost a few until I sorted my hook out which cost me a bit of time but had a really busy enjoyable match.
I put 125lb on the scales but I was a bit worried as I had a 4 pounder jump clean outta my keepnets and that definitely cost me the Win as matt roden won the match with 127 lb but FairPlay to him I will definitely be keeping my nets up higher or covering them in future !!!!!  Still a great night ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ thanks for reading

Uk champs rnd 2 glebe

Looked forward to a nice day off  work and a visit to the glebe had a walk round with Ben Hagg and Jamie park house had some banter and talks of a dream draw !!!!!
Into the tin of dreams and pulled 79 lake 5 middle of the lake penned in!!!! My head was gone before we even started I set up waggler and bomb and hardly used it wind was pushing through left to right. So I set my stall stall to fish caster shallow and through the layers at top kit plus 3 (first mistake) shoulda fished it long !!! Had an edge line either side at top for slightly out from the bank where I found some clean flat spots!!! At the all in chucked the bomb across and fired pellet and fed my caster line had a few chucks on bomb and wag for nothing so went on the caster line losing 2 carp in two puttings ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ฑ then all I could catch was skimmers and the odd pasty had a hectic spell shallow of 3 carp ๐Ÿ˜‚then lost won and it died went back fishing it through the layers and just bream ๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ฑ so primed my edge and went in 8mm banded floats buried 3 pound skimmer !!!! I caught a few I learnt a few things and enjoyed the day just not the result I was hoping for!!!! It was just one of them days I ended with 12 pound of skimmers and 29 of carp for 41 pound only beating one in my section ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Pete archer on end peg wind blowing in won the section with 150 pound then there was a couple other ton weights. So not the draw I wanted gotta be due a flyer at hayfield in the next round pls pls pls save some pride ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I wheel span out the car park !!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ didn’t hang about for the results. Anyway onwards and upwards gotta get some prep done now sort my act out !!! Proper calamity ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ thanks for reading sorry for boring you with pour results but I don’t want be acussed of you only sing when u win๐Ÿ˜‚ and it gives me something to look back on next year and remember where I went wrong no pics as took me to long to setup and as soon as it finished I was gone like lightning ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Summerlane rnd 4 evening silvers only

Well needed a good draw for this one to keep top of the table and was not disappointed as pulled peg 2 which is usually a great silvers peg with the added pressure of it being golden peg ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ the wheels were smoking on my trolley I pretty much ran to it ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Set my stall out to fish worm over gb at 13m at 11 o’clock and micros and expander at 1 o’clock I also had a short line but never had a sniff on it. At the all in fed my lines and had a few chucks on the tip for not a sniff I should of give it more time but being an eager beaver!!! I’ve gone on pole early and ruined my lines catching carp and the odd small skimmer took most of my 7 skimmers on the expander but shoulda stuck to worm I think๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค” didn’t think I was doin too bad in my section then Chris zsacks said he had 11 skimmers ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ I feel I fished a pour match really but were they even there ?? My 7 went 6.6 lb for 2nd in section Chris’s 11 went 16 pound to win the match
Well done mate smashed it !!!and took a well deserved pound back ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ on to my other side bets took one off des Phillips and sensas sam either side of me dangerous Dave ran off without paying then Thorney the king of summerlane finally got his mojo back and took a pound back after the 5 in a row I’ve had off him ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ then I got absolutely ripped to pieces after the match but FairPlay I would of done the same ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚!!!! I’m still top just joint top now ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ but thorneys got a big weight and chris zsacks and a few others are now on my tail with 2 rounds left !!! It will be what it will be ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
So roll on the next one hope I draw a flier and it’s solid !!๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘ thanks for reading

Todber hillview Weston aa away day

Been dying to get to this prolific venue after seeing the results every week!! And finally we did. We had bright sunshine and wind !!!
On the way we stopped off at Skevys cafe which was quite good when the food came but there was only 2 of them trying to sort 25 lads !!!on arrival stopped at the tackle shop and was very impressed the staff were helpful and friendly we drew at the cafe and not ever seeing the lake didn’t know what to expect didn’t really care it was all about having a nice day!!so I pulled 43 I herd 49 was a good peg so thought I wasn’t far away but it was on the far section of the lake ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ . I was slightly disappointed with my peg as no island chuck and my peg was facing down to the corner!!! For company to my left i had Paul Hawkins who was really quiet (which was strange ๐Ÿ˜œ) and Titch (pink gin squad) Williams to my right it was pretty quiet while setting up then guess who ?? Local bait ledgend Tom thick and Lewis jones and my peg was facing the pair of them I thought well if I didn’t catch much least I could watch these two๐Ÿ˜Ž.

The pic don’t do it justice the wind was coming hard from right to left making presentation on the pole difficult. First hour I’ve struggled to present anything properly.but from the off I was pinging in some 6mms at 18m just for something to do if it was hard or whatever!! After an hour of watching Lewis have one a bung on the tip I gently chucked out the bomb and it went round slow and steady all little pasties pulling the rod off the rest mind had a carrasio aswell !! But after giving Simon Ryall a load as he kept losing fish I lost a few but his new name is beachcaster Barry !!! So I shortened my hook length and started to land them but I wasnt going anywhere fast tom was catching steady on his shallow rig now and looked like I was gonna get proper bashed up !!!  But I kept feeding and trying my edges and other lines for nothing really then the tip line went dead and the wind dropped a little bit so got my head down went on me pellet line I was feeding by hand all day with 6s I was getting weird bites and losing fish and tearing my hair out switched up to an 8mm then had a nice run off fish soon as I hooked one I threw a small handful of 6s in the water as hard as I could to make the noise I now call this technique the slam dunk ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚. I had a steady last two hours catching in spells but all small fish mainly pounders and I’ve not seen a fish over 2 pound!!! Through out the day we’ve had loadsa banter me tom Lewis and Titch all giving each other a load Lewis is now the carrasio kid !!! He could only catch one or two then nothing and they got funny mouths ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ he told us many times through out the day.had a few side bets on the day as it’s away day had a fiver with Billy no mates Jonny page who drew down the bottom on his own no wind ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ cheers Jonny had another fiver with Matt Thomas who drew the flier 49 and won the match with 130 ish I think musta been solid ๐Ÿ˜œ
Well done ๐Ÿ‘ pound with tom thick I scraped that one by a pound Paul Hawkins cheers mate dan Latimer cheers mate I had to give one to beachcaster Barry but took one off peanut who won the silvers with 30 pound  cheers mate then it was round to Thorney I’ve had 4 in a row was it gonna be five course it was ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ des Phillips had to give me one also ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ had more side bets than pellets on me tray ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ I only weighed 71 pound but probably had 65 fish so a nice day. After the match we went to the crown just up the road for results and grub and more banter I think I was crying with laughter at one stage!!! Peanut won silvers Jerry day won his section 80 ish pound Lewis won my section with 90 odd and mattthomas won the match well done to all and thanks for reading can’t wait to go there again awesome fishery ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ thanks to everyone for the laughs on the day and thanks for reading ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

Summerlane rnd 3 evening sweep

11 lads made it to this round with it being an everything counts round just hoped for a flyer 1 10 11 or 18 but it wasn’t to be drew peg 8 again (jungle warfare) same as last week๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ good for silvers not great with carp!!!!
With mark Thorne in my section on 12 didn’t really think I stood a chance 12 is a lovely edge peg and carp live there 
There he is!!! Any way plan was fish it the same as last week but with stronger hook and white hydro to give me a good chance of landing a carp or too if the chance arrived๐Ÿ˜ณmy gb was slightly different too at the all in filled one line in positive and one quite negative flicked some pellets with the catty and chucked out the conker. 1min and 10 seconds it’s flown round a lovely skimmer getting on for 2 pound thought come on then let’s have it but not another bite on it๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข so went on me positive line and struggled had 2 skimmers off it and 3 eels and 1 carp but it was a lump ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคžit would beat Thorney Chris zsacks was to my left he had a mare losing a few carp and a pound to me ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ the whole place fished rock hard again really. But Thorney lost 9 carp and landed 1 snapped a top kit and lost a feeder he was distraught and he had to give me another pound ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ that’s 4 in a row ๐Ÿ˜Š dangerous Dave and lee Phillips struggled off flyers 10 and 11 and sensas Sam Johnson made no mistake off his flyer 18 winning his section and match with 45 pound tough night once again but lots of banter at the weigh in which I filmed it’s on the Weston aa fb page if anyone wants a laugh it’s a good job we had the banter cos the fishing was hard ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘Š anyway I had my dropper when I was away on holiday so can’t afford any bad results and ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿคž 2 section wins out of 2 seeing me top of the table ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š just gotta get my drawing arm back for a big weight in case it comes down to weight at the end as thorneys gotta 90 pound in the mix ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Roll on Thursday first visit to todber hillview hopefully some more nuggets !!!!๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ thanks for reading ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
