Dwindelled numbers due to various holidays and other issues showed only 12 on this match. Originally we had both Kingfisher AND Meadow booked, but will low numbers was decided on a vote basis that we should just have the 1 lake… maybe this was the reason for the low weights who knows.
A lovely sunny day, if you were on the right bank, but with a cool wind that stopped you holding your pole for too long at 14/16m.
Fish were topping but not showing, with the odd decent fish taking the bait for each.
No blankers this week, and a good result for Paul who christened his new MAP 301 pole beautifully.
The biggest applause is for Mike Beardman, narrowly missing a chance for 3rd place and his best result to date.
Golden peg was peg 5 drawn by yours truely (Simon Nadin for those who forget who I am), but with losing 3 or 4 decent carp also lost the chance to take the pot on this occasion.
1st – Paul Nadin (33lb 8Oz)
2nd – Rick Golden (20lb 5Oz)
3rd – Scott Harding (17lb)
Next match is 9th August at Commonwood Fisheries, a new venue for us.
