Phil's day

Morning to all, the Weds club fished its club lake at Beggars Hall this week. I drew peg 19 - it's a middle of the road peg but glad to say there was a lot worse draw. Made up two lines for the pole and a feeder line about a third of the way across the lake. I started by feeding my pole lines with red maggots and micro pellets then left this and fished the feeder on method mix and 6 mm pellet. I was just thinking to myself to try the pole as it had been a hour then the tip went round and I landed my first carp. So stayed with this method and 45 mins later got my second carp a bit bigger than the first. Went out there again and 30 mins later got a third one then nothing. I then moved onto my pole line at 10 meters but not a touch so onto my rushes line had a bite straight away - small roach - then second put in got a roach a good 8 oz third put in nothing so stayed with it hoping a carp had moved in and scared the small stuff away. The float goes under and a perch about the size of my little finger had taken the bait. So back on the feeder for the last hour - I had two liners one of which nearly pulled my rod off its rest but that was it. I weighed in 20lbs 1oz.

First Tony Cruci with 44lbs 3oz, 2nd Fred Hunt with 43lbs 7oz, 3rd Peter Green with 23lbs 9oz and 4th Phil Whitmill with 20lbs 1oz.
