Gary's day

Despite the fuel panic and Stansted Mountfichet being gridlocked with people queuing we had a good turn out.

It was my first visit to Bordeaux Pits - think Beggars Hall but a bit smaller and thinner. I had heard plenty of rumours of the big carp in here but with them counting as 2lb it could be a funny day. I drew at the top end near the island where it is pretty narrow (I could get to the far back with 13ms) and shallow (about 3ft). I had a slow start catching micro roach but at least something was in the net. After an hour or so a few small skimmers turned up and I thought I had cracked it but they soon disappeared leaving me scratching around for a final tally of 3lb 14oz and a place in the middle of the pack.

Sadly the silvers did not play ball and BS were given a lesson in how to fish Bordeaux Pits by SW.

Many thanks to SW for being great hosts. Photo is my peg for the day.
