A fine but cold morning with a strong breeze greeted us, but the wind tends to blow over the top of your head with the ponds set down low. We pegged down both sides of the pond and as the fish seem to move around a bit more now it’s hard to call the best pegs until you start and see what happens.

Keith drew peg 6 (Golden Peg) and set up to fish 3 lines one hard on the island the 2nd along side the pads to his right and the 3rd down the middle. First 4 put ins saw 4 fish hooked and 3 landed across to the island on maggot. The rest of the match was a bit patchy with just the odd fish coming from all 3 lines. Ending up with 2 Carp and 4 F1’s and a few Roach for 19lb 15oz and first place

A rare visit from Mike Kitchener saw him draw peg 9, after a slow start he found 3 F1’s across to the  island along with a large Skimmer and few silvers down the middle. His 11lb 13oz gave him second place.

Graham drew peg 10 and found it hard going with just 1 F1  weighing in at 2lb 12oz and no other bites.
