Phil's day

Hi all, the Weds club fished its club lake at Malcolm Barker. It was going to be a very hot and bright day not good for the MB Lake so I expected it to be slow. I drew peg 17 but did a change for peg 23 to allow for an old un - didn't do myself any favours as its a very open peg with little or no features. I made up two pole lines: one for the margins and one at 10 meters. Just a small amount of cupping in as I am fishing for roach and skimmers. Started off with my 10 meter line on corn and pellet with no effect so it boiled down to punch bread. After an hour I was picking up the odd skimmer of an oz range but always with the hope something a little bigger will come my way. I could see the anglers opposite me were catching so assume they were all doing well. I finally got my bonus fish at about 3pm a small tench of 1lb. I finally ended the match with 3lb 9oz
