The Grand Appeal

A quick update to thank all who took part in the Fish and Field Christmas match and we have had the good news from the grand appeal with the amount raised which is 378.01.
The donation will help Bristol children's hospital to continue to provide world-class care for their young patients and their families and give hope to thousands of children. It will help in so many ways from providing tea and biscuits for parent groups, to providing essential music therapy and life saving medical equipment.
Thank you once again

New Special feature now on the latest page(hot spots to fish this weekend)

Some good sport on offer this weekend such as local lake Brimsham park,lots of small fish being caught on maggots also carp on boilies have been taken.
Now the weather has got colder try fishing a little method feeder here with dead maggots on the hook.
If you are a amalgamation member then tockenham lake is worth a look lots of roach being caught this week and odd carp on floatfished maggots,try straight lead and corn for the bream and carp without feeding anything again its cold now and the fish will huddle up so if your on them you should catch.
Windmill fishery westerly has been fishing well for carp on the match lake on lead tactics maggots or corn the bait also the silverfish lake is worth a look lots of bites on maggots from small fish ideal for the young and older anglers alike ..................tight lines

Good Roach sport on the cards this weekend

The weather is cold and the water is clear but one or two fish will be willing to feed.
Roach can feed well if you use the right approach small hooks finer lines and less feed will get you more bites.
When I went to a local club lake last week I fed some fine white crumb using a pole cup and fished a small peace of punch on the hook and started to catch roach straight away don't worry if you don't have a pole you can throw a small ball of crumb in by hand you don't need to fish to far out as the roach will be closer than you think as long as you have a bit of depth.
Also try adding some casters to the crumb as this will attract the larger roach and skimmers, carp will often come into the cloud of bait to investigate to.
Now the weather is dry and frosty I cant wait to go out and catch some winter roach.....tight lines

Fish & Field Christmas Match

It was off to the Sedges for the day for Fish & Field and 40 of its customers on Sunday 20th December for the annual Christmas match. The café at Bridgwater was inundated with at least 20 of the participants (lucky we let them know!) and after a very pleasant breakfast it was down the road to the Sedges Complex. Both lakes were to be used and following a warm welcome from Jamie and Denise Cook we all drew pegs. Des Shipp drew peg 3 and we were told that the angler on that peg had blanked the day before!
Anglers on Brick Lake caught steadily, especially Chris Davis who used meat on the straight lead. Half of the anglers on Tile lake caught well to begin but it tailed off as the day wore on. Those of us on pegs 21 - 30 struggled all day!
Anyway, enough of the moaning, what about the results?
