Hi all, the Weds team fished at Beggars Hall in the interclub match with Saffron Walden. I had a full team of 10 anglers so all the pegs had to be put in. I drew peg 15 - bad peg but you got to make the most of it. Made up two lines on the pole and got the feeder and pellet wag - out these two were going to be my best bet. I cupped out some micro pellet and mixed it with some 6mm with some dead red maggot on what has now become 3 lines on the pole. Started off on the feeder with a small lead and tea bag of mixed pellet sat there for a hour or more to know this was not working. Onto my pellet wag I had been feeding 4 and 6 mm pellets most of the morning so gave it a go but no luck there. So onto the pole, tried all my lines nothing, so decided to sit it out for roach and perch. Five tiny fish later and the match was over. I weighed in 5oz to come last but I did weigh in.
1st Roger Philips with 58lbs 11oz, 2nd was Grayham Carter with 30lbs 8oz, 3rd Jeff Pearson with 21lbs 6oz, section winners were sec 1 Barry Cornel with 12lbs 4oz, sec 2 Peter Green with 20lbs 3oz and sec 3 Dennis Gowlet with 13lbs 11oz. Saffron Walden took the win overall. Pic is one of our newest members Dave Knapp.
