Hi Stuart,

You missed out Coldingham?   Smile 

Or was it just bank fishing?

Best Regards

Just a thought but if everybody made a post on the site when they fished with,weather,tactics,catches etc then nobody would need to keep a diary and we would all have a cracking database.Unless some folk like to keep things secret......... Wink Laughing

2013 Season Results

Post by Shipman on Sun Jan 05, 2014 9:32 pm

I have been keeping records of my days out for a number of seasons now and they can give you an indication on what might work at a given venue at the same time of year and conditions, I say might because after all its fishing and the fish don't read the records  Very Happy Very Happy 

Here are my totals for the 2013 season:-

fishing trips 66

total fish 747

rod average 11.32

Fish of note:-

Sharpley    13 1/2lb
Sweethope 8 1/2lb
Chatton     11lb
Alderneuk  13lb  and 8lb
Seighford   12 1/2lb
Higham      7lb & 7 1/2lb

Fisheries visited:-

Chatton           19 times
Sweethope        7 times
Higham             5 times
Tweedale           5 times
Lochter Aberdeen 5 times
Sharpley            4 times
Whinnie Lock      4 times
Langley Dam      3 times
Grafham            3 times
Markle               2 times
Jubilee               1 time
Wansford            1 time
Toft Newton        1 time
Stocks                1 time
Alderneuk           1 time
Glenbervie          1 time
Aldin Grange       1 time
Belflask              1 time
Seighford            1 time.

1no Blank which was at Wansford on a TEFF Individual heat, what a time to do it  Very Happy  Very Happy 


A lot of the above have been competition days, either heats or finals.

Been lucky enough to fish for England at Lochter in Aberdeen, where the team came 2nd.
Won the Peter Taylor memorial comp at Tweedale
Won the Tweedale pairs with Jim Tuck.
Won the Higham Pairs with Jim Tuck
Came 10th in the TEFF Eliminator for the 2014 England team, needed to be in top 7.
Chatton Chaser team came 2nd in the Greys National Bank competition with Jim Tuck & Gordon Swain.

Flies have varied through out the year,  Blood worms, rabbits, blobs, mini cats, buzzers, diawls, tinnies.

It has been a good season, only down side was not qualifying for the England team for 2014, as its going to be on my home water Chatton, but I will try again for next year in Ireland.

Ive been keeping records for years. I bought a book called "Fishing Record Book" published by Ebury Press Stationary....ISBN 0 09 177852 2 I have had it for years. Each page has Columns on Date, Fly/Bait, Weather, Water conditions, Size, Species and Comments. Im sure there may be similar books out there still but it is a great way of recording trips and then looking back over the years at what the weather and water were like, what flies I caught on. I even put the odd photo or bit of memorabilia like day tickets etc.. in. Its a nice read in the winter when not much is happening and a good way of reminiscing. (I will leave it in me will for me son lol)
