Gary's day

It was back to Beggars Hall today after a drier but colder week. Out came peg 19 for me, not a peg I fancied as the fish seem to always be moving through it rather than stopping.

Rob got off to a flying start on peg 5 with a carp on the first cast. And so did Mark on peg 16. Peg 19 was a lot slower. After an hour of trying the method feeder without any signs it was time for plan b. Finally I had a bite on a little cage feeder with groundbait and maggot. I was not best pleased though when it came off right at the net and a good looking double figure common headed back into the deeps.

A hope that this was the first of a few fish did not materialize. I had a consolation 8oz roach a couple of casts later but even the perch and silvers were not playing ball. A few carp had slowly been coming out with Jeff on 18 and Rob on 5 having a few with John on 4 and Terry on 20 slowly catching up. Another roach on the pole was my lot for the day; not a blank but not far off.

Mark over on 16 had a great day with 14 carp and a rogue bream for 90lbs 2oz. Rob then just pulled ahead of Jeff with 40lbs 6oz to Jeff's 37lbs 2oz. Picture today is Mark with part of his winning catch.
