I drew peg 5 so a short walk and an island peg, good area for F1s!
I started off by cupping in a ball of groundbait with dead pinkies and maggots in at 13m slightly to my left, this was the deepest part of the peg before it shallowed up toward the island and a few 2mm pellets with some maggots at 12m to the right where I had found the same depth as the left swim.
Starting on the pellet line with maggot on the hook I was soon into a fat F1 of about 2lb which of coaurse had to be put back, whilst fishing the long lines I began loose feeding a few maggots dowm the near shelf to my left. After a couple of F1s I caught a few small skimmers and the odd roach alternating between the two long lines but the pellet line seemed the best.
When I felt the pellet line needed topping up with the cup I would try the short maggot line which produced a few Roach but wasn't prolific. At the end of the match I thought I might have 3lb so was pleasantly surprised when they went 4lb 14oz, a few of the Roach were obviously bigger than I realised. This was not going to win me anything but I was a respectable 7th of 22.
