well the second match of the season was fished on the causeway pool at kingsbury water park. i knew this match was going to be hard but never thought it would be half as hard as it turned out things started well with dave gordon netting a double figure carp in the first ten minutes news was filtering through that colin had also landed a big un! as for the rest of us it was turning into a bit of a mare! i said to gordon who was pegged to my right that at least will all come equal 3rd if no one else catches as it turned out there were a few fish caught not many but some good uns. my dad had a very nice tench plus a few skimmers alfie also had a nice tench , i managed a 3lb 10oz bream, stan had a decent skimmer but apart from that just a few bits were caught along the far bank i could see some very glum faces. tony, micky and john poole were all fishless which is very,very rare and as dave preece keeps reminding them that he beeat them all with a mighty 1oz well done dave no wooden spoon this year mate. at the weigh in it was dave gordon who came out on top with one fish that weighed 10-02-00 and is the clubs biggest fish to be caught this season. my dad was second with 08-10-00 and colin third with 08-00-00 and well done alfie coming third beating me by 2oz ( git! ) well done alfie
below we find colin, a fine specimen of a man in his inflatable suit! a happy looking neil in action andrew has an awful lot of gear there to put 1oz of fish onto the scales big pete concentrates his way to a dry net, unlucky mate my old man fishing in tench corner alfie the other tench man in the next peg to my dad
stan looks happy or has he just got wind ? me getting ready for a very long wait for my one fish! gordon enjoying the sunshine mr poole the younger had a bad day as did his dad john but beware they'll be back fireing on all cylinders at blythe waters. john cummins enjoying his day by the waterside. dave gordon in the corner peg minutes before he hit his monster carp. my team of 4's star man mr preece, well done davey tony looking a bit fed up but be warned he'll be gunning for the trophy next time out. another man who had a bad day at the office micky davis dave gordon with his match winning carp. alfie taking his fourth place winnings off me (git ) wasn't a great day but got to be better than being stuck in the house, see you all at blythe waters in a couple of weeks chaps.
