What a lovely start to the day, losing 1 hour in bed with almost all fishermen remembering to put their alarm clocks forward.
The sun was shining, the owner of Brookside walked us around the 2 lakes ensuring we had the right pegs for the best chance. 10 on Kingfisher and 8 on Meadow hoping to be a great day.
Draw at 8am went great, with the assistance of Mark from Brookside, who provided draw balls and a nice little box. Few grumbles from those who wanted Kingfisher expecting that lake to fish the best of the 2 as it was showing weights over 40lb in previous matches.
Lovely venue, with ability to drive to your peg ensuring even the oldest of us, could easily setup their tackle. Few late comers made the draw extended a little, you can always rely on builders to be late :-).
All in at 9.30am and within 5 minutes there was carp coming out of both lakes, which showed that it wouldn’t matter which lake you where you were on just which peg.
After 6 hours a few blanks with no bites, but overall most caught something. Simon’s weight was the worst thou, with 3 small fish that didn’t even register a full ounce, but still weighed in to keep up the banter.
Top 10 weights all showing over 2lb is a great result for any club.
With the next match restricted on pegs, this could get interesting for the league standing.
