Phil's day

Hi to all, the Weds Club fished its match on Malcolm Barker Lake. Tthe last match there I drew peg 7 and won the match so in good spirits I waited for my turn at the draw bag 3rd from last and wow peg 7. I have got two rigs for this swim from a month ago but when I got to my peg a lot more weed had grown into the peg. I made just one line because of the weed but at two distances one - at 10 meters and one at 12 meters. I fed some casters and hemp on one line and red maggots and pellet on the other. It took maybe an hour to get a bite from a small roach and that was from making a lot of adjustments to the rig this continued for another hour with just the odd roach and skimmer then, out of the blue, I got a tench on and lost it to the weed. Checked my rig and the hook was straightened out so with some quick adjustments and a stronger hook back out to where I lost the tench and within 30 minutes got another chance. It rooted itself firmly in the weed but, with beefed up rig, I held onto him. Went on to catch 4 more tench and some roach and rudd and had a good days fishing. I weighed in with 16lbs 1 oz for a lake win, 1st Phil Whitmill with 16lbs 1oz, 2nd Terry Moranda with 4lbs 13oz, 3rd Jeff Pearson with 3lbs 13oz, 4th Peter Green with 2lbs 2oz. Well done to all who fished its not a easy water by any means.
