Good day to all, the Weds club had the monthly interclub match with Abbey Cross at our home water Hall Farm. I drew peg 6 not very keen on it but it has produced some decent weights off it lately. With 16 anglers most pegs were in with anglers either side so it was always going to be hard with low weights. Made up my usual two margins and a 8 meter line as i t was too windy for any further and a feeder with a pellet method and banded 6mm pellet on the hook. I fed my pole lines with 6 mm hard pellet and a little corn as I did in both margins. Started off on the feeder and had a carp within 20 mins then had 2 more over the next hour until it died a death so onto my 8 meter line on pole. It was hard work trying to get presentation so after half a hour gave up on that. So on to my margins - could not get a bite anywhere so tried the feeder again - nothing, Both anglers were struggling either side of me - one had 1 carp and the other had small silvers so I was doing better then most that I could see. It got to about 1 pm and the angler to my right got a carp from his margin so I put the feeder rod up the bank and fished the margins. I had one almost straight away and carried on for the rest of the match down there and I weighed in 29lbs 6oz for half way on the score board. Overall it fished quite well with the expected pegs doing very well and framing, 1st with 53lbs 10oz was Alan Fox ,2nd with 46lb 10oz Martin Adams, 3rd Terry Moranda with 43lb 15oz ,4th Tony Parker with 43lb 10oz ,5th John Carter with 42lb 12oz ,well done to all.
Abbey Cross won with 78 to Bishop's Stortford's 57.
