22 on this match so we would have a bit of room with the fishery to ourselves.
I drew peg 9 which has had some good form during the summer with carp and some big bream.
I set up a carp rig and a silvers rig to fish at 5m and a rig for down the edge to my right under the trailing branches of the willow tree.
I started by feeding 2 balls of groundbait with micro pellets and a few casters at 5m and 3 balls of groundbait down the edge. Starting on the light rig at 5m with meat on the hook I foul hooked and lost a large skimmer or bream first put in so I thought I would start to catch fairly soon as there were obviously some fish came to the feed but it was hard going, it took my about 30 minutes to catch my first fish.
I had a quick go down the edge now and then hoping to find some carp and bream had arrived but this didn't really produce until the last hour or so. I had to just catch what I could at 5m, After changing to double maggot hookbait I did have a little run of decent skimmers but then nothing for quite some time.
With an hour and 15 to go I went onto the edge line, triple maggot caught me a good bream but then I was getting pestered by tiny roach and perch so on went 2 pieces of corn which resulted in another bream then a 5lb carp.
After a quiet 15 minutes I tried worm on the hook, this brought a couple of skimmers and that was it, all out!
My 1 carp went 5lb 1oz and with the silvers my total was 18lb 13oz which put me 10th on the match.
