Gary's day

The cold days of the week clearly had people preferring to stay warm in bed this Sunday.

After the struggle many had had at Beggars Hall in the mid-week Inter-club match it was going to be hit and miss as to whether the F1s fed. The smaller turnout did though give everyone a bit of room. The BBC's forecast of moderate wind was a little optimistic and it was a struggle to fish more than a top 4 for most of us. I drew peg 6 and was quite happy with this being around the middle of the lake. Not knowing how it would fish I set up a couple of pole rigs and a feeder rod. The pole was a waste of time as the wind was too gusty to get reasonable presentation despite a few goes so that left the feeder. It was a steady day swapping between a cage and maggot feeder searching around the peg for the fish with the F1s showing willingness to feed. I even managed a small skimmer - but just the one.

Hall Farm fished well though and everyone had a few bites with the deeper half of the lake towards the M11 perhaps fishing a little better than the shallower car park end that are the favoured pegs.
