Hi all, the Weds Club fished its Christmas match at Hall Farm. It's become a tradition now for us to have a few sausage rolls and a drop of Peter's sloe gin before the draw. I drew peg 18 yet another bad draw but at least we got clear water with no ice just a bit at one end but we pegged round that. Started off with just two lines and a feeder; my feeder line produced nothing not even a micro perch so stayed with the pole for the rest of the day. I got my first perch, not too bad about 1oz, so carried on with my 10 meter line but this produced nothing must have been just an odd fish. Stayed on my margin - this got me another 6 perch and a roach then about 1 ish got my first carp and lost it at the landing net. Went on to hook 3 more carp and lost every one of them. To be honest I was glad when 2.30 came round to finish the match.
1st Steve Foster with 21lbs 5oz, 2nd Ray Gibson with 10lbs 10oz, 3rd John Carter with 9lbs 6oz and 4th Peter Green with 7lbs 11oz
I would like to thank Gary for doing his side of the weigh in and Terry and Peter for supplying booze and sausage rolls, wishing you all out there a very merry Christmas.
