well saturday saw us fishing an open match at fisherwick on the streams pool. after checking in at the lodge so the lads could buy their pellets it was off to the pool which is a very strange shape, like a canal in most places but widens out in a couple of spots. the sun was shineing and it turned out to be a very nice autumn day. i drew peg 5 a short walk from my car. to my right i had colin horner and to my left micky (the beast ) davis. whistle blown and down to business. first hour and not a single bite!
there going to kill me for booking this one i thought to myself
then suddenly my float dips and i'm into a monster of a perch of at least half an ounce
. i then missed a couple of bites before i hit a decent skimmer of about three quaters of a pound
that was it for another hour. i decided i needed a break and went walking around the pool along with colin who was also in need of a short break. speaking to other lads close to us only dave gordon had caught a few bits, oh dear. down by the car park all the lads had dry nets
at the far end andrew had a decent carp in his net and john cummins had a few bits. back to my peg and i started to get a bit of interest at last. i kept missing lots of bites which was doing my head in
then i had a couple of decent perch and a roach but i kept missing other bites. i could see dave dave gordon starting to put a good bag of bits together and i could hear that big pete had lost a good carp ( shame
) and john poole was letting us know that my dad was also catching.
below we find sargent alfred mobbs doing his exercise ( keep young and beautiful , if you want to be loved
