well the season has just flown past and what a great season it has been. the weather has been kind to us and the fishing been excellent, UNTIL YESTERDAY!
there had been no rain throughout september but we had a months worth of rain fall on us yesterday morning. was really looking foreward to this match as the stretch had been fishing really well over the last few weeks. but what always seems to happen we our lot the tempreture dropped th skys opened and it fished rock hard.
the winning weights were 1-4-0 shared by alf and micky who was also fishing the golden peg, i was third with a huge 1-0-0 and tony 4th with 0-10-00 . it was that hard the dave gordon caught 7 fish and did not register on the scales so we gave him a dram for each fish ! oh well it was better than being stuck at home, JUST!
only 14 brave souls turned up to fish this one and one member dave preece never even set up and had to head home with back trouble. anyway here we find gordon setting up in the rain in peg 14.
next is poor old dave who struggled all the way to peg 13 only to drag his tackle all the way back to his car with a bad back.
next we find my neigbour for the day tony kibble.
