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 knock ups, club matches, open matches and commercial opens. I consider myself to be a good angler that likes to fish Commercial opens most of the year with the odd small knock up or smaller match every now and again. After many years club fishing and winning a lot of matches, cups and trophies in 2018 I decided to fish just Commercial Opens. My framing ratio was around 50% for these clubs matches. Since 2018 this frame ratio has dropped due to the quantity of the anger I now fish against most weeks of the year.

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 commercial opens isn't anything to fear but you do need to put the hours in to succeed.
