Phil's day

Morning to all, the Weds club fished the interclub match at our lake at Beggars Hall. It was always going to be a hard day as the lake has not fished well for most of this year and particularly as we have had three really hard frost this week. I drew peg 16 not a good peg but that's the nature of the draw. I made up 3 lines for the pole with lighter rigs to give myself as much chance as possible; did one at 12 meters and two for 5 meters and my feeder was going to be my main line halfway to the island. I started off on the feeder with pellet and method feeder fished this for a hour but nothing. Not to concerned as this is a very slow lake and later in the day is when it can happen. Next to try was the pole at 10 meters to try and pick up some roach or perch. Didn't get a bite, not even a indication, so on to my closer lines. Still nothing, so back onto the feeder. Tried a bit closer to the island and after 2 or 3 casts I had a small pull round for a mirror carp of 13oz and that was my day till I started to pack away in readiness to do the weigh in. I had a little perch of half an oz the only thing biting properly in my peg was me having my lunch. My total for weighing in was 13oz and that gave me 6th place and valued points.

1st was Ray Gibson with 19lbs 13oz, 2nd Alan Sims with 19lbs 11oz, 3rd Fred Hunt with 6lbs 7oz and 4th Terry Moranda with 5lbs 10oz. This gave Bishop's Stortford a good win 47 points to Abbey Cross 64 points
