Manor Farm Leisure

Peg 6 Middle Pool
19lb
Last
21 fished

4th round of individual winter league at Manor Farm Leisure.  I was unsure what to think of the draw, funny peg to be honest, especially this time of year, but Middle Pool you never know!!  

I only caught 6 F1's for 19lb. Lost two. One foul hooked and pulled out and the other pulled out at 5 meters when shipping back. 6 points and no good. Unfortunately loosing two fish has cost me couple of valuable points.

Liam Dennick destroyed the match with 90lb next to me on peg 3.  See all the weights below.

Overall I think I'm joint fourth 😢😭 12 points and two rounds to go

Manor Farm Leisure

Peg 26
82lb
1st place
4 fished the match.

Started on bread, and caught nothing.  Then fished 17.5 meters to the island and had a 8lb carp first drop on 4mm expander pellet and then caught steady flow of the F1's.  It faded, so went 14.5 meters in open water and caught F1's for the rest of the match.   Awesome day, lucky to be on some feeding fish.

I had a lovely day catching F1's on the pole, must say the Colmic Airon F66 is an awesome bit of kit.  I thought the Colmic Airon F44 was awesome, but I believe the F66 pole is as tough, lighter and stiffer.

Harescombe Fishery

Peg 3. 
10lb
No good.
11 anglers fished the match.

I love Field Lake at Harescombe, beautiful surroundings and great fishing.   Even though I had a tough day, still enjoyed it.  I could of honsetly caught 15lb of Roach, but that wouldn't of won me a penny, so tried to catch carp solely for the last half of the match and failed.
The lake fished well to my left in places, especially at the top end, that really switched on the last two hours.

Gear used

Manor Farm Leisure

Peg 41 Boundary Pool
22lb 10oz
2nd in section
No good
14 fished

Went to Manor Farm Leisure today.  If I'm honest I was very surprised to draw peg 41 boundary.  Not the best of draws.  But head down and caught 35 small skimmers and 6 small F1's to win my bank with 22lb but didn't win section as peg 17 was in our section?!  Well done to Chris Cameron on section win with 26lb.

Colmic team mates done well again, Frank won the match and Liam was second overall.  Well done fellers.



Well done To Frank and Liam, first and second overall.
