Hi all, the Weds Club had its monthly match against Abbey Cross on our water at Hall Farm. It was a very dark and drizzly morning but it was mild with the promise it was going to be dry later. I drew peg 26, an absolute flyer of a peg in the summer but shallow water not what I needed. Made up two pole lines for maggot and pellet and a feeder for when all else fails. Started off on my 10 meter line and soon got a perch - not too concerned at this stage as it's a points match but it didn't get much better by the end of the morning so on to my feeder. Still nothing so tried the search method - here, there and anywhere. By 1.30, with a hour to go, got my first carp this was followed by 4 more carp in quick succession then all quite until the last 15 minutes with my 6th carp and I weighed in 18lbs 2oz.
1st Alan Sims with 23lbs 8oz, 2nd Bill Beeston with 21lbs 14oz , 3rd Terry Moranda with 20lbs 12oz, 4th Tony Cruci with 19lbs 13oz and 5th Phil Whitmill with 18lbs 2oz.
Well done to my Stortford team overall winners today with 76 points to Abbey Cross 62 points.
