Phil's day

Good morning to all, the Weds angling club fished the Backwater at Pig Lane it was our 4th round of the winter league. I decided to put all pegs in barring two to see what parts fished the best. I drew peg 13 not one of my favourite pegs but I had a game plan and I was going to stick to it. I made three lines: one far over by the barge; one about 6 meters out; and the last one down the inside. There was no flow on the water and no colour to speak of. Made a chopped worm line and a bread punch line and red maggots down the inside line. Well that's as far as the plan went after hooking pike from all lines - only landed two and they don't count but between pike attacks I managed a few decent roach on maggot and quite a few very small fish on bread. I ended the day weighing in 2lbs 2oz for 1st place and max points.

Cover pic is Fred Hunt pretending he knows what he is doing 😀 first place Phil Whitmill with 2lbs 2oz, 2nd Tony Cruci with one perch for 2lbs 1oz, 3rd Jeff Pearson with 1lb 12oz and 4th Fred (I am going for a walk round and bemoan my lot) Hunt with 15oz well done to all on what was a very hard day.
