Phil's day

It's a Sun inter-club match between Saffron Walden and Bishop's Stortford.

I drew peg 3 today 2 away from where I would like to be but not too unhappy. Made up two lines for the pole and a pellet wag and a feeder but put my faith in the pole today. Cupped out some 4mm pellet and a little groundbait at 10 meters and down the margin some of the same with some dead red maggot for good measure. Tried the feeder to start with not a touch so put that up the bank and on to the pellet wag. A few enquiries but no takes so that followed up the bank with the feeder. Went on pole line at 10 meters with 4 and six mm pellet nothing so concentrated on my margins that's where I thought I would catch. Eventually had my first carp at half eleven only small but something to work on then started to pick off a few more of 2 to 3 pounds then by 3pm it died a death so got my up in the water rig and managed to pick 1 or 2 much better size 5lb or so carp. Finished off back in the margins for the last half hour but no joy ended up with 39lbs 14oz for 2nd place only to be beaten by Sam by 1 good fish Sam had 43lbs

Stortford had the win by 94 points to 122 points Saffron Walden
