Jon reports on his Guru festival Win

After a very frustrating bait tech festival the week before where I Had 5 2nd’s in section, 4 of which were either ounces or just a few Pounds off winning, with Andy geldart winning on 4 wins and a 3rd, with a little bit of luck things could’ve been so different. » » Read More…

Jon Whincup reports from his successful week at The Maver Festival Whiteacres 2015.

Day 1: Twin Oaks peg 27: Standing in the draw queue for the first day of any festival is always quite nerve wracking as you want a decent peg to give you a chance of a good start. Twin Oaks and trelawny are in this section so when I pulled out 27 twin Oaks I was happy enough, I was in the middle of the lake and I had avoided the dreaded low numbers. » » Read More…



Maver Match This – Qualifier – 16th August

This was last chance saloon as far as the maver match this qualifiers was concerned, and going into this match I thought I had missed my chance of qualifying the previous week at hallcroft, after drawing an out and out flier and only managing 3rd off it losing a load of fish along the way. » » Read More…



Decoy Lakes Festival 2015

Day one beastie lake peg 15: I always look forward to this 3 day festival with 3 lakes in use with 60 anglers on it spread over the lakes rotating all 3. The first day draw is an open one and then you find out where you are going for the next 2 days. I have actually been lucky enough to win this festival twice so the first day draw is always exciting as you find out who you are spending the 3 days with, but with no mugs fishing it doesn’t really matter too much. » » Read More…



White acres milo festival – so close

Day one – Bolingey peg 42: I was quite happy drawing this peg as my mate had been on it the week before, with the whole arm fishing well, although it did seem to be better on the 2 ends, pegs 36 and 38. I decided to fish pellet on my short and long pole lines as meat just seemed to be ragged by silvers all day. Starting short to try to nick an early carp on the trusty fp 700 .4 float, I was soon attached to my first carp which decided to fall off at the net, quickly followed by a foul hooker which also came off, hmmm that’s annoying I thought, little did I know how costly they would be. » » Read More…



Bait Tech Festival – White Acres 2015

Day one:
The first festival of the year at White acres soon came around again with me drawing D section, which meant starting at trewaters and peg 46 to be precise. This peg is on the bottom lake and on the far end that you usually don’t want, so first day and I was already up against it. » » Read More…



Guru bag em decoy lakes winter league

This inaugural event run by Barry Mason was just what decoy lakes needed during the winter months, a good series of matches fished on the brilliant beastie lake, a lake full of all sorts of species of fish, f1s, barbel, tench, ide, roach, skimmers and of course some huge carp of which the lake got its beastie name from. A well done bazza for running it. » » Read More…



Preston pole fishing pairs – Novmber 8th, 2014 Barston & Packington Somers

I’d just like to start this Blog off by saying what a good idea this mini league is, 4 silver fish (and f1s) matches being run on 4 prolific commercial venues with pole only and natural baits only. A great idea and one that’s been on the cards for a while, nice one matt Godfrey, Tom Scholey and Lee kerry for running it. » » Read More…
