It was a wild and wind swept day at Home Farm. At the draw bag it was deja vue all over again as I pulled out peg 7 which was peg 6 in the last match and peg 8 before that one - 3 times in a row for me. That made setting up very simple as I pulled out my rig from the last time. The wind picked up quickly and I had to retreat back from 7 to 6 sections of pole. It was a frustrating day for me with only 1 out of 4 carp hooked ending in the net with the others coming off.
The lake fished harder than expected but at least the roach were feeding so we all had a few bites.
1st Fred Hunt who had a steady day ending with 5 carp on bread punch for 18lbs 5oz , 2nd Gary Pickard 6lbs 8oz and 3rd Phil Whitmill 3lbs 3oz. The wet and muddy score sheet gives you an idea of awful the weather was.
