Phil's day

Hi to all, the Weds club had there match at Hall Farm club lake. I drew peg 5 or, as I affectionately call it, no man's land. I made up two pole lines: one in the margin; and the other at 10 meters; and as a back-up the feeder with the method. I only had one margin side as I had a tree come bush to my right at about 2 to 3 feet so it meant fishing into the wind on my left - a bit awkward but manageable. First fish on the feeder played it in only to have it slipped the hook which then catapulted my rig into the lane rope just what I didn't need. So a long walk round the lake, untied the rope, then back round to my peg, removed my rig intact and then back round again to retie the rope back to where it was. So not a good start, cast back out and 10 mins later got one in the net at last. Went on to catch 3 more but lost them off the hook so onto my pole lines. Started off at 10 meters on banded pellet had 3 small carp but they weren't having it so onto my other pole line - this was what my money was on for a decent weight. I had been feeding pellet and sweetcorn down there with a few red maggots just to keep the small fish away from my hook bait. It took a good hour before the carp moved in but not in great numbers. I stayed with this till the end and weighed in 34lbs 8oz.
