Morning to all, the Weds Club fished our match at Beggars Hall club lake. We had a good turnout on a day that promised to be very unfriendly with high winds and rain. I drew peg 6, it's a peg that throws up the odd fish throughout the winter. The water levels were very high and over the bank at one place which meant most of my rigs were going to be very short with no time to make new rigs so mend and make do was the order of the day. Anyway most of my day was going to be feeder fishing. I baited up a couple of areas close in at 7 meters and a long cast to the mid way point. Got my first carp about midday then nothing for a hour then John came down for a chat from peg 4 as he hadn't had a bite and as we chatted I got my second carp of about 10lb then nothing till 3 pm and got two in succession and lost 3 more likely foul hooked. Ended my day with a windswept 29lbs 11oz
