well last saturday saw us fishing for the bromford autum challenge trophy and the rules stated that we needed two keepnets!!!!!!!!!!!!!
tony kibble discovered he'd forgot both his nets, i think he knew what was coming!
on arriving at my peg i was quite pleased to see plenty of small fishing topping and being on the bottom pool i was well out of the strong wind unlike the poor buggers on the top pool
all in and neil to my right was in straight away catching a few roach.i started hard on the bottom with small cubes of meat but was catching bugger all. so i came up in the water and started to snatch a few roach. looking around the pool i could see dave preece bagging up , i'll say that again dave preece was bagging up!
alfie was following the fishery rules as normal by balling in graound bait or mashed bread as he likes to call it
up on the top pool big pete was keeping us well informed as to what was going on and as tony kibble lost a big carp we all shouted jolly bad luck old chap ( then fell over laughing
) to my left micky was into a good fish but just as he was about to land it , TWANG!!!!! again another lost fish , i would have laughed but he was far to close to me
well after a couple of hours there was a lot of bank walkers, a sure sign that things were not going well. i asked if anyone wanted to fish on for another hour to which the replies comming back were something like " no thanks old chap
" well to be honest most of the replies ended in OFF!!!!
anyway on to the weigh
in, colin weighed in first with a wonderful 2 oz and he was winning for 5 minutes
on the bottom pool top weight went to mark with one carp for 3 1/2 pounds. on the top pool it was not much better but at least dave gordon put 4lbs plus on the scales but winner by a mile was john poole with a brilliant 19lb which included the biggest fish of the season so far an 11lb common carp, well done john.
below john with his excellent carp
now i know theres some fish in there somewhere thinks me!
club bouncer pete shouts i told you lot not to laugh when tony keeps bumping off fish!
seems like a nice boy!
2oz was all he caught, well thats what you get for wearing a villa coat and a stupid hat!
andrew thinks to himself "what the hell have i done joining this club! 2 )
bagger preece sits it out in the sunshine
