Awesome weekend this weekend!!!
Saturday 17th October saw me at manor farm on the open. 14 anglers turned up so both lakes were in, Middle pool and Windmill pool. I really fancied drawing on windmill pool and thankfully I did! Peg 22 stuck to my hand.
This is down the far end of the lake in the deep water and I had a bit of room. Kept my approach very simple and only kitted up a few rigs.
Started at 13m on the deck where I caught really steadily all match and spent pretty much all day on. I did come short when my long line died but only had a great big F1 on it! At the all out I didnt really feel like Id done enough to win my lake as heard Chris Telling next peg had been catching.
I weighed in 79-0-0 which was first on my lake and put me 3rd overall with 84-0-0 coming off Middle pool. Really enjoyed the day and was looking forward to the next day.
Sunday 18th October saw me fishing a team of 4 match at Cob House fishery in Worcester. I was pegged on Laugherne Island Peg 10. The lake has a series of 3 islands and I drew right in the middle of the middle island. Again I kept my approach very simple and just fished pellets on the pole.
For the first part of the match I struggled for only a few fish but eventually got my head down and caught a few fish long.
I finished the day with 74-0-0 which was 2nd on my lake. With only 78-0-0 winning I was annoyed as I lost around 5 carp.
I had heard that my other team members had done well and Jordan Holloway won his lake on wyatts with 115-0-0 amd Owen Robinson won his lake with 62-0-0 and Andy had struggled on his lake for around 6th. So with 2 firsts places and a second we won!!! Really happy with that as we came 4th last year but was nice to come back and win it!
All in all a very nice weekend which I thoroughly enjoyed!
