Historical Match stats
Being in full time employment means I am only able to fish at weekends, the odd day off and a few evening matches in the summer 

I started to record my match results at the start of 2014 

The matches I fish range from, small knockups, club matches, open matches and commerical opens. I consider myself to be a good club angler that likes to fish many club matches during the year because I enjoy the banter on the bank club fishing brings. I generally do OK in these matches framing most weeks. 

However I also like step up to the commerical open circuit when ever I can and fish in these types of matches. What I have found that the quality of the anglers fishing commercial style venues isn't that far ahead of the good club angler. This main difference is that these Commercial anglers generally fish at the same venue all the time and are very "switched on" to the current methods/tactics required during the year at their chosen venues. To succeed on these Commercial venues requires dedication by the angler. These become so called venue experts and for the occasional angler dipping into these venue's, picking up any winnings can be very difficult.  I know anglers that have gone several years fishing these venue's before they finally begin to pick up regularly. So making the step up from club fishing to commericals opens isn't anything to fear but you do need to put the hours in to succeed.
