Phil's day

Morning to all. The Weds Club fished its monthly match against Abbey Cross at their water Hunters Hall.. It's mainly a tench and bream water with a good stock of rudd and roach - it makes a change from carp and more carp. I drew peg 15, it's a good peg but a bit exposed to the elements. I made one line on the pole at 7 metres, one along the edge of the lily beds and a feeder for a long chuck. Started off with pellet and corn on my 7 metre line with a ball of groundbait and did the same in my lily pads except added a half a cup of maggots. I first tried the feeder but couldn't settle on that so on to the lily pads for some roach and rudd on maggot. I had a dozen very small roach and quickly changed to a bigger bait (corn) for better quality roach and rudd. They soon disappeared so on to my 7 metre line on 6mm banded pellet. This got me a few more good roach then, out of the blue, my first bream of about 4lbish then that died so back to the lily pads for a spell while the groundbait I had just put in settled. Got the odd roach but it was clear they had gone not just for me but for 4 pegs around me so back out in front add got another bream and lost a bream. Then a quiet spell until I got a couple more after that just the odd bit but little else till the end. I have enjoyed my day and weighed in 16lbs 15 oz
