  1. PWL Round 6

    Another sharp overnight frost meant only one thing - breaking ice yet again. Now you followers of my blog's know how I feel about this task, so you can feel the mood I was in - I've just about had enough of this winter already.

    So it's the notorious Siblings again for me today, but as my colleagues said "well at least you get it out of the way today".....very true. Peg 5 on the horse shoe was to be my home and what greated me on arrival at the peg certainly had me thinking! ...

  2. Packington Winter League - half way stage.

    We are at the halfway stage already and another grueler was on the cards judging by yesterday's open on Molands, made even worse by another sharp drop in temperature freezing over areas that were free of ice on Friday.

    Now if there is one thing I dread - its breaking ice, partially because I'm bloody useless at it. If there was a wicket to aim my lump of metal towards, then the umpire would award several wides and I'd probably get selected for down under 😂 So after 30 mins ...

  3. Packington Winter League Rd 4

    Firstly let me start by saying how I wasn't looking forward to this round as my rotation has me fishing the notorious Siblings pools - great in summer but deadly when the first hard frosts appear. Two pools designed to suit the small angling club and pleasure anglers where pole fishing is the main attack.

    So I was hoping for a favoured draw but unfortunately I drew peg 2 on the horse shoe (Sibs A). With water crystal clear despite the gaffers attempt to cloud the water with a chemical ...

  4. Packington Winter League Rd 3

    I was really looking forward to this 3rd round as I had to sit at home for rounds 1 and 2 on bed rest following my heart stent fitment last month. So I'd like to thank the two Anglers who stood in for me and recorded mid section scores. Thanks go to Pete Murray and Matt ?.

    My rotation draw today was the high numbers on Molands and following a short practice on Friday I knew it was going to be hard going due to the recent cold snaps and frosts. So when I drew peg 43 I wasn't too sure ...

  5. Final round - Silvers

    Well I had to settle for second overall 😊 as I could only muster half the weight I needed and got bashed up off the peg to my right by Dave Stretch Armstrong 24.14.0.

    I had 12.2.0 - and struggled throughout the match trying to combat the strong wind and heavy tow. Gambled on the big skimmers coming in close to any of my Three 6 metre lines - thought the Corn and Meat might do some damage today but wasn't to be.

    Top Three
    Dave Smith Lanes bait 3 points ...

  6. Solihull angling silvers mini series

    Hi Guys

    In the final winter league blog I made reference to this 4 match series and how I spent most the match watching Danny catch skimmers because I had a very important 3rd round the following week. After two rounds I was sitting top of the pile on weight advantage something that I'm not use too. With 3 from 4 to count one more section win would maybe do it if my only rival didn't match my scores over the last two rounds.

    The Draw
    Dave was before me to dip ...

  8. PWL The Final Round.

    That's it all over until November - how did I do?

    Well not as good as I'd hoped when it all began last Autumn and 72 anglers set off on a quest for glory. Little did 71 anglers know that a certain Mr Phil Canning was in the mood to dominate, and boy did he dominate, leading from the first match and staying at the very top for every round. I take my hat off to this lad when I think back to a few draws that a lesser angler would have slipped up, he still managed to score well.

  10. Packington WInter League Rd 9

    The Penultimate Round.

    I was really looking forward to this round as there are a few pegs on Little Geary's more than capable of winning the whole match - something that was of interest to me as finishing in the top 15 looks out of the question now. With my two droppers already in the bag the rest of my points already amassing 30 points........too many for the last place envelopes.

    For some unknown reason I fancied peg 5 which of late holds some big Carp down to the ...
