Hi everyone, fished the first interclub match of the new season against Abbey Cross at Hunters Hall. It was a low turn out just 6 in our team but we were up for it. I drew peg 18 - didn't know much about the peg but my mate in the next peg up records it's not a good area. I made up two lines at 10 meters one at ten and one at two o'clock - I fed pellet and corn looking for tench and red maggots and ground bait on the other hoping for roach and rudd. I started off on the feeder for half a hour to let the pole lines settle - this only produced one rudd of 4 oz so onto my pole lines. Tried the ten o'clock nothing so on to my maggot line and caught 2 and 3 oz roach and rudd for a hour solid and then, for no reason, it all just stopped suddenly. Struggling on for another hour trying to get them back when I caught a tench of about 4lbs. Then for the remainder of the afternoon went on to catch 2 more tench and a bream, with the odd perch at the end of the match weighed in with 19lbs 15oz for a 2nd place.
First Tony Parker with 24lbs 4oz, 2nd Phil Whitmill with 19lbs 4oz, 3rd Martin Adams with 15lbs 10oz and 4th John Carter with 8lbs 12oz. Abbey Cross win with 50 points to 28 points Bishop's Stortford
