Phils' day

Hi all, it's been another lovely day sitting in the sun. We fished the Hall Farm club lake. I drew peg 2, it's a flyer but you still got to do the work to catch. I have fished flyers before and they don't always produce the fish. I made up 2 lines for the pole - 1 at 10 meters and 1 down the margin and the feeder for further out to the middle. I started off cupping in 6mm pellet and red maggots on my pole lines I left them to rest and started off on my feeder. This instantly produced roach and rudd to half pound or so - only 2 of each but it was a surprise as we haven't seen them all winter. With little else coming I went on my pole lines. The 10 meter line produced 3 more rudd of the golden variety stunning colour. This dried up so onto the margin - this is where I will do most of my fishing today. It had taken a hour to find a couple of carp and I was beginning to think it wasn't going to switch on but by 1ish I started to pull a few better carp and the last hour produced more regular. Ended my day with 45lbs 1oz for 1st place

1st Phil Whitmill 45lbs 1oz, 2nd Jeff Pearson with 29lbs 6oz , 3rd Tony Parker with 20lb 13oz and 4th Steve Foster with 19lbs 6oz well done to all
