Phils day

Morning to all, the Weds club fished the River Stort Backwater. It was going to be a very damp day with bad light conditions but not a bad thing when it comes to rivers. With only 10 anglers I put all the favoured pegs in so should be no blanks. I drew peg 12, a much favoured peg in my books and had all the right rigs for the job so very little setting up was needed. I made 3 lines up: 1 right over to the barge; 1 down the margin 5 meters down stream; and 1 middle of the track. Tried all three lines and the most productive was down the middle for a better stamp of roach and rudd with the odd dace and chublets. For the main I was kept busy all day for a weight of 5lbs 5oz
