Hi all, the Weds club fished its first match since December we held it at Hall Farm big lake. The weather was very good considering what it has been like, we had 14 anglers and an empty lake so it was a good start. I drew peg 2 which can be good. I had a good depth of water in the margins so made up two lines for the pole - 1 at 10 meters and 1 for the margins either side. I got the feeder rod out just in case. Potted out 2mm pellet with some red mags and 4mm pellets in the margins. I couldn't get a bite anywhere so out came feeder and first cast a carp and within 15 mins another that I lost at the net then nothing for an hour. Back on the pole and still nothing. By this time it was 1 pm ish so had a bite to eat and drink so out went the feeder and within minutes had another bite and landed that. I stayed on the feeder and had 3 more and then at 3pm with half hour to go went down the margins and hooked another giving me 4th place with 15lbs 12oz
1st was Tony Cruci 78lbs 9oz, 2nd Fred Hunt with 49lbs 8oz, 3rd Sam Robinson with 35lbs 11oz and 4th Phil Whitmill with 15lbs 12oz. Well done to all and a special thanks to Sam helping with the weigh in - much appreciated.
