Gary's day

Today was the last match of the 2023/4 season and had us at a very wet Hall Farm. The forecast was for rain all day and it was spot on.

After seeing the low weights on Wednesday's match pretty much every peg was in with a chance and I was happy with Peg 6 which is normally pretty consistent in winter.

A start on cage and maggot feeders did not get me any indications but plenty of fish were showing on the top. Well out of pole range of course. After 45 mins or so it was time to try the pole; this is one of the deep pegs with 9 feet at 5 sections and still dropping away. And not a sign even from a few silvers. This was not looking good.

Phil on peg 2 was starting to get a few fish and then Fred on peg 4 got in on the action. 90 mins in I finally had a bite and a fish, a small carp of 3lbs or so on a maggot feeder. The deeps were fishing slow and it looked like the fish wanted the shallower, warmer water today.

No more bites on the feeder or another go on the pole and then one on a hybrid feeder. Phil was still catching and Rob on peg 10 also seemed to be getting a few. A go at getting the attention of the topping fish on a waggler got me another carp a bit past the midway point and then it was just 1 more carp out of the blue on the feeder. I never had a bite on the pole line. It was 4 fish for 16lbs and a thanks for coming for my closing match. Phil had an easy win off peg 2 and then it was very close for second with 2lbs between 3 anglers.

Today's very soggy results were 1st Phil Whitmill 40lbs 6oz, 2nd Mark Halverson 22lbs 10oz and 3rd Fred Hunt 20lbs 15oz - and pic is Phil with his winning net of fish.
