Peg 19 was not a great draw for me but you never know on this lake, a good last hour down the edge can make a lot of difference.
I set up 2 rigs for fishing at 4 metres, 1 was for paste hook bait and the other for banded pellet. I started loose feeding 4mm pellets here from the start.
My other rigs were for down the edge left and right, I planned to feed pellets to my right and a groundbait and dead maggots approach to the left.
First put in with the paste rig and I had a small carp but then couldn't get any positive bites on this so switched to the banded pellet rig. Loose feeding 4mm fishery pellets by hand, lifting and dropping the rig brought a few more carp now and then but nowhere near as frequently as hoped for.
Around half way through the match I put in a few cups full of groundbait and dead maggots to the left margin and started feeding pellets fairly heavily to the right whilst continuing on the 4m line, after a while some movement could be seen in the left margin swim so shortly after that I had a try there.
Bites were not easy to come by and it was much more of a struggle than the amount of fish obviously present would have you think but I managed a few in the last hour or so.
My 63lb 9oz total was not the result hoped for and put me half way down the field on the day.

This was the view from Peg 19, could not have been much further from the favoured clubhouse area!
