Good morning to all, the Weds Club fished an interclub match against Saffron Walden club this week and it was a good turn out with 9 aside. I drew peg 26 - it's a good peg and has produced high weights of late so was full of confidence. Made up two pole lines, 1 at 10 meters and 1 along the margin to my right and, of course, the feeder for distance work. At the all-in I cupped in some 6mm pellets and a bit of corn on both lines. I started off on the feeder for the first hour and caught 3 out of 7 carp - for some reason they were not taking the bait. So onto the pole and didn't get a bite at 10 meters so on to the margin. Got a couple but very slow so back to the feeder and started to cast about looking for the odd one. This resulted in 4 more fish before it died. So back to the pole in the margins with bread - this produced some better fish but still slow until the last half hour when I landed two carp for 18lbs 4oz to finish my match.
1st R Phillips with 95lbs 3oz, 2nd James Gillard with 56lbs 4oz, 3rd Phil Whitmill with 53lb 12oz, 4th Tony Parker with 43lbs 9oz and 5th Terry Moranda with 41lbs 12oz.
Bishop's Stortford won with 97 points to Saffron Walden's 74 points. Well done to both teams. Pic is peg 26 my peg.
