The forecast was for light showers with a moderate breeze, clearing up a bit in the afternoon which sounded OK for this type of fishing.
I drew peg 10 and similarly to most would fish 2 lines, one at 20 metres and a longer one at 45 metres.
I started the match by putting in 8 large feeders of bait on the short line for later in the match where a lot of big Bream would hopefully settle for the second half of the match.
I then started fishing the long line with a few 5 minute casts to get a little bait in then started leaving it in for 10 minutes each cast.
After about 20 minutes Steve on my left had a Bream and as he was putting it in his keepnet round went my tip, I thought here we go the're having a munch but it was just a case of a bite now and then with no real pattern to it.
Half way through the match I had my first cast on the short line and after 2 minutes the tip went round, this seemed like a good sign but it was to be the only bite on that line and Steve also only caught one fish short.
I ended the match with 7 Bream for 22lb 15oz which was 5th in the match.
Steve on the next peg to me ended up 2nd with 13 fish for 41lb.
Well done to fellow VAC member Alan, winning the match with 77lb of Bream from peg 20.
