Gary's day

It was a cracking September day - probably not the best day for catching skimmers which can be a big help at MBL but it was nice to see some sun. Today's peg for me was no. 3 and I was near some lilies for a change - so I had hopes of a tench or two. The tench did not play ball for me despite a few goes although Tony had some fun with the carp in peg 2 (peg 2's reputation as a pole graveyard was maintained). I had a very busy day on the waggler catching small roach to end up with 8lbs - more than I thought. Jeff, a couple of pegs round the lake, had some much better quality silvers playing a more patient waiting game on casters - one to remember.
