well after a 6 week break we were back on the bank at last. after the last few years of fishing bonehill big weights were expected again, " WRONG " ! on arrival at my peg i could see quite a few dead carp in the margins. after walking the pool before we started i could see dead fish all around the pool. one of the guys doing the weighing in at the end of the match told us they had lost a lot of fish after a thunder storm a few weeks ago. what ever the reason something was not right!!!! i was expecting the club record to go . as it turned out the match was won once again by the king of bonehill tony kibble. tony did a great job landing a 30lb plus catch on the day, a weight before we started i wouldn't have thought wouldn't come in the top 6!! so well done mr kibble it was very hard going. micky just pipped john poole by 4oz's for second place with a modest 14-08-00 and big pete did well to come 4th with 10-08-00. as for the rest of us well lets just say we have had better days! in the carpark before the match we find the texas rangers stan and colin, must be the silly hat contest time of year again !
the lads in the car park before the start of the match.
me and my adopted dad stand gaurd while waiting for the weighing committee
cheer up paul least you got a sun tan mate
man mountain big pete helps with the weighing.
now big pete is struggling with my mighty 9 and half pounds!
mr kibble the younger has had better days as well
neil pulls out his net and weighs the same weight as me which was good enough for = 5th on the day, shocking really but well done neil it was bloody hard going.
top man on the day tony drags his net out in the sun to be crowned winner on the day.
next it's texas ranger stans turn on the scales.
colins turn to try and make the needle on the scales move
not gordons greatest day either but his turn will come
alfie swears there's some fish in there somewhere mark enjoyed his smoke more than his fishing dave's not a bonehill fan and again things didn't go to well alfie still looking for them fish blues brother john had a few
well it's back on the bank again this weekend at the riddings lets hope things go a bit better this time round.
