Phil's day

Good evening to all, the Weds club fished its weekly match on the Club's Backwater part of the River Stort. It was a wet day but I am used to that now but at least it dried up before the weigh in. I drew peg 14 not a bad peg and I was in with a chance. Made up three lines: over to the barge;and down the middle; and a perch line on the inside. The flow was very good and the colour was dropping out all the while. I did chopped worm over to the barge, bread punch down the middle track and worm and mags on my inside line. It took 45 minutes to get a bite but they were there. Did all my catching down the middle track on red maggots - tried the punch but they were so small - 50 to the pound size. I weighed in 3lbs 5oz most were 2 or 1 oz fish but had a couple of 4 to 5 oz, 1 being a 4oz skimmer hybrid.
