This was very well attended with 38 fishing. I helped with collecting the monies which included a £3 donation from each angler for charity.
I drew peg 25, not a great draw but thought I might manage a few carp plus silvers as it was quite a mild day at around 9 or 10 degrees.
I started a bit late and put in a couple balls of groundbait containing some pinkies and a few 2mm pellets at 13m then started on a deep dobbing rig with bread near the spit going out on my left. I had a nice surprise when I caught a Carp after 10 minutes then another 2 Carp in the next 40 minutes.
I thought that was a very good start, unfortunately it went downhill from there with just some small Roach to show from the remainder of the match.
My 12lb 3oz put me 10th out of 38, there were some good weights for the top 4.
