Hi all, the Weds club fished the 5th round of our summer league at Beggars Hall club lake. I drew peg 19 not a good peg for me but it is what it is. I made up 3 pole lines 1 at 10 meters and both margins and a pellet waggler for distance and if the fish are showing and, of course, a feeder. Started off on the feeder as the fish were keeping their heads down - stayed on this for a couple of hours but not a bite in sight so on to my 10 meter pole swim. This produced a small 8oz common carp then nothing. I noticed some movement in my margins so on to that. It was difficult to see because of the bushes overhanging the water but I finally hooked one just before the storm hit it was a nice mirror of about 8lbs. I then hooked another one but lost it - probably foul hooked. Then the storm hit I know I said I wanted some rain but not all at once wow. When it blew over the fish started to move in again but all too late had one more before the final whistle, not a blinding day but 2 good carp for 16lbs 8oz.
First Darren Marder with 82lbs 8oz, 2nd Terry Moranda with 39lbs 8oz, 3rd Peter Green with 38lbs 12oz and,4th Ray Gibson with 18lbs 6oz well done to all. Photo is a rather soggy Phil.
