Phil's day

Good morning to all, the Weds club fished its match on Beggars Hall. It was a good turn out considering it was 5 degrees below and the lake was part frozen over. I did manage to find 13 pegs that were clear or part clear of ice but it was going to be hard. By the time we got on our pegs the sun was shining and it wasn't too bad.

I drew peg 20 it's a summer time peg and in the last 4 matches pegs 20 and 19 have blanked so I didn't hold out too much hope and just fished for a bite really. Made up two pole lines and a feeder rod. Fished all morning without a bite not even a tiny perch then, out of the blue, at midday a bite on the feeder for a delicately landed carp. It was my only bite but it saved a blank. Thanks to Peter Green helping with the booking in in the morning while I walked the lake as Terry Moranda was taking yet another day off.

1st Steve Foster with an amazing 69lbs 9oz, 2nd with one carp Bill Beeston with 16lbs 3oz, 3rd Jeff Pearson with 2 carp for 16lbs 2oz and 4th Phil Whitmill with 1 carp for 9lbs 13oz . Only 5 anglers caught today.

Pic is my peg 20 with plenty of ice down the margin.
