Phil's day

Hi all, the Weds Club fished its last interclub match of our season with Abbey Ccross at Beggars Hall. I drew peg 23 not a good peg but at least it was a different one. Pegs 3, 4 and 5 were left out as they have been rubbish all winter. I made up two pole lines and, of course, a feeder one on cage and a second feeder on method. On the pole lines I did a maggot line and a pellet line at 10 meters to left and right, started off catching small roach and perch on the pole . I gave it an hour then tried the feeders this proved fruitless so back on the pole for a few more small fish then, by luck, got a good double carp on. He gave me a good fight and just as I was about to land him he came off. That was my one and only shot at a decent carp. I ended up with 4lbs 4oz

1st Steve Foster with 53lbs 5oz, 2nd Dave Fuller with 47lbs 13oz, 3rd Jeff Pearson with 43lbs 7oz and 4th was Ray Gibson with 43lbs 3oz. Bishops Stortford won with 49 points to Abbey Cross 2nd with 29 points. A big well done to the Stortford team. Final tally Abbey Cross win 7 matches to Stortford's 5 matches it was close run. Pic is from peg 23
