Off to John candy,s prolific todber manor for the first round, i only have 24 fishing this series, so today we were on ash and homeground, fancied a draw on homeground as generally in these short pole matches it tends to be the more consistent, aaron britnell drew for me and handed me 80 on homeground, happy with that, for company i had kev winstone on peg 79 and vince shipp on 81 in the corner, so a bit of banter was guaranteed,

Baxk down to this well kept fishery again, twenty booked in so still popular, john hawkins got the draw underway, i wasn't upset to be called out with peg 3, its a good carp peg with an island at 16mtrs and good margins as thwre is plenty if room to the next anglers, on my right was dave white on 2 and merv clark on my left on 4, ably assisted by the yorkie devil dog who doesn't seem to like anyone or anything apart from merv.

Sunday and i was off to Todber with chris fox for a match on hillview being run by john darby,on hillview. nice breakfast omelette at cafe fox before the journey, very nice. Not to bad a journey down , seemed to be a lack of sunday drivers about, im not complaining. Paid our money and john got the draw started on time, i was fairly well down the queue, but was more than happy to pull out 54, its a corner peg with plenty of room and options,

A nice turn out today , 20 booked in, not to fussed as to where i drew , so when john pulled out peg two for me , i was happy, it can be a good carp peg as the island is easily reached ,

Baxk to this popular venue on sunday , with the match being fished over the two canals again, Hawthorn and West pool, as is normal at the mo Hawthorn would be the preferred lake for a good days fishing, plenty of fish in west pool but its being difficult at the moment, perhaps lack if angling pressure isnt helping. So when john hawkins pulled out peg 4 for me i was happy, and a bit of banter was assured as i had mot calpin on three, to my right on 6 was lewis walker. Inwas happy with the peg as it was not quite 14 mtrs wide, with a nice clear patxh against the far bank.

I had a couple of choices today, stay local and go to huntstrete, but i didnt fancy stopping after three hours for a weigh in, then doing another three hours, so off to shiplate it was then.got there in plenty of time , well, ten minutes to draw time is ok. John got the draw underway and pulled out peg 13 for me, happy enough, always a good silvers area plus a sensible carp peg on its day, but after striking up the quid side bet with alan quantrill, i decided to concentrate on skimmers, i was on 12a last match and had 40lb so i was confident of a few.

Firstly it was down to shiplate for a match split over the two canals, went with chris fox and no complaints about the breakfast roll the fox household produced. Got to the fishery in plenty of time, john hawkins got the draw underway, i fancied a day on hawthorn, as i usually end up on westpool, so more than happy with that, on my left was alan quantrill, £1 bet secured , but at his request it has to be said. On my right was tim, no surname on the sheet sorry. John was paying top two on each canal and one silver. The peg looked good with a nice farbank, bare bank next to a dead reed bed which seemed to have plenty of fish in it, also my right hand margin looked very tempting.
