Gary's day

It was a not so summery day with a rainy start and struggling to get above 18c or so. Thankfully the fish did not seem too bothered - just us anglers. I pulled peg 5 - a middling peg in the middle of the lake. The beauty though of Hall Farm is that it is a pretty fair venue and you have a decent chance from lots of pegs. I had a great start on the feeder picking up a couple within minutes before the line switched off. On to Plan B. A quick try down the margins saw a few signs but it was just too early so it was time for something else. A try out long on pole did not work but pushing out a bit further on the waggler finally saw a few fish heading my way. And then it was time to try the margins again and this time there were a few fish there.

The lake fished pretty well and I ended up with 75lbs with a couple of 60s - there were only a few fish in it as some of the F1s and carp here are getting pretty chunky now.
