well we were promised the hottest day of the year, what we got was a near gale force wind blowing straight down the cut
well after parking up and unloading the tackle dave and tony went off on their pegging duties.when back gordon jammy git chester won the £10 card draw. i drew a nice looking peg with a tree hanging a quater of the way over the cut, well pleased
i later found out that our peggers are both dyslexic
pegging out in order peg 10 peg 11 peg 13 peg 12
(not that dave preece told me
anyway after blowing the whistle to start it looked like being hard work as i went half hour with out a single bite
after balling in a few marbled sized balls of swimstim green mixed with a little brown crumb i started to get regular bites catching about a dozen perch in the second hour of the match. i then decided to switch from maggot to bread punch and first put in i hit my first skimmer of the day
from then on i caught a staedy stream of skimmers with a couple of bonus 2lb bream. i buggered up about five rigs all tagled around the top of my pole
well after five hours of dodging boats, bikes and dog walkers it was time to weigh in. i knew i had done well and there were a few reports of some decent bream being caught. well i ended up as winner with 11lb of bream and perch with micky davis 2nd with 3lb 6oz mainly made up of one good bream, big pete and john poole came = second both catching one decent bream each. there was only one dry net and that was my old man
although david evans tossed a couple of tiddlers b ack so finished = last with my dad.
