July the 28th, 16 fished. A Wythall Royal British Legion AC contest today, at Woodland View fishery, in rural Worcestershire.

Ockeridge, Apple Pool

July the 27th, 11 fished. A rare outing with Rolls-Royce Angling Club this week, at the prolific Ockeridge Lakes in Worcestershire.

Elmbridge, Pheasant Pool

October the 7th, 11 fished. A bit of a ranty grump-fest of a blog this week, as there are a few things I’d like to get off my chest before I move on to the contest. Basically, I want to talk about the treatment we’ve had as a club this season at a few Midland’s […]
