Alvechurch Fisheries, Canal Pool

May the 13th, 14 fished. A bumper bonanza blog today – and it’s give-away time – as deep-shallow reaches its first birthday. Also, a further cause for celebration is the fact that we are rapidly approaching ten thousand views – no small achievement for a thrown-together pile of fish-related nonsense. So, to commemorate this joyous […]

Oak Pool, Ockeridge

    April the 22nd, 16 fished. A good turn out for this Hall Green Home Guard AC contest, as we ventured into deepest Worcestershire, and a new venue for most of us in Ockeridge Lakes. Today we would be fishing Oak Pool, a small, 30 peg water known for its hard-fighting carp, some of […]

Meadowlands, Lambsdown

March the 25th, 18 fished. A good turn out today of 18 (for want of a better word) “anglers” for this, the first Wythall Royal British Legion contest of the season. Today we would be fishing the picturesque Lambsdown, a 13 acre lake renowned for its stock of hard-fighting carp and hoardes of skimmers and skimmer-bream. In […]

Alvechurch, Canal Pool

February the 18th, 16 fished. A good turn out today for this, the first match of the Hall Green Home Guard AC season, at Alvechurch Fisheries in rural Worcestershire. Today we would be fishing the Colmic Canal, a brilliant 27 peg water positively brimming with roach, rudd, barbel, ide and hard-fighting little ‘stockie’ carp. The […]

Lower Park, Willow Pool

  January the 14th, 31 fished. An excellent turn out for this Kings Heath Angling contest at Lower Park Fishery, in rural Worcestershire. This would be the first match of the Tony Corbett-organised mini-league, fished over four rounds; the primary aim of every angler competing today would be to win his section, as this would […]

Lower Park Fishery

December the 27th, 21 fished. A great turn out today for this regular Wednesday open – to keep things festive though we’ll call it “Tony’s Chronies’ Turkey and Tinsel Bash” – at Lower Park Fishery, in Worcestershire. After a night of snow and sleet I contemplated rolling over in my pit and giving this one […]

High Pool, Tunnel Barn Farm

  December the 3rd, 12 fished. A poor turn out today for this Hall Green Home Guard AC contest, at a gloomy Tunnel Barn Farm, in Warwickshire. After a week of biting frosts and fierce gales, I could understand why many club members had shied away – I too am no great fan of winter […]

Canal Pool, Alvechurch

November the 19th, 18 fished. 18 hardy souls turned up today for this Hall Green Home Guard AC contest, at a frost-bitten Alvechurch Fishery, in rural Worcestershire. This would be the penultimate club match of the season, the climax of the league and the semi final of the knockout – so plenty still to play […]

Heron, Elmbridge

October the 22nd, 15 fished. A healthy turn out of fifteen anglers for this Hall Green Home Guard AC contest at Elmbridge Fishery, in Worcestershire. Today we would be fishing Heron, a pool capable of producing colossal nets of fish, but with it being late autumn I felt a modest weight would be enough to […]

Little Geary’s, Packington Somers

October the 8th, 17 fished. A healthy turn-out today, for this Wythall Royal British Legion AC contest, at the picturesque Packington Somers Fishery in Warwickshire. This would be the last match of the club season, and if my calculations were correct I had won the club aggregate with a contest to spare. The standard of […]
