Good day to all, the Weds club fished Hall Farm club lake. It was an extremely hot day but the turn-out was good. I drew peg 24, not a bad peg and I was in with a chance of framing from it. Made up 3 pole lines and a pellet waggler and, of course, a feeder as backup. I fed mainly 6mm pellets with a handful of corn on all my pole lines, on the waggler it was 6mm banded pellet and the same for the feeder with a pellet method feeder. I started off on pellet wag but the carp just didn't want to know so with over a hour wasted fell back on my feeder. Got my first carp on but it took me into a weed bank and snapped my hooklength after this happen 4 more times I upped my hooklength strength to combat the weed banks, This worked for a few fish then died a death, so onto my pole lines. Started on bread but nothing seemed interested so onto paste - this brought on instant bites so stayed on this till that died so back on bread got a couple and they were a better stamp of fish then ended up on 6mm pellet to finish the day. I weighed in at 77lb 15oz nice.
In first place Phil Whitmill with 77lbs 15oz, 2nd Fred Hunt with 58lbs 12oz, in 3rd place was Tony Parker with 56lbs 10oz and 4th place Peter Green with 53lbs 12oz. Well done to all as it was a uncomfortable day heat wise, pic is of Jeff and tell from way back
