Peg 8 Boundary Pool
After a busy few weeks of work, it was nice to fish a mid week open. Was undecided where to go, so decided to go to Manor Farm Leisure.
Boundary is a great lake, as when the float goes under you don't know what it could be.... anything from a beautiful ghost carp to small skimmer.
For me I was going to keep it simple and fish the pole and pellets and the bomb. Simples. 4mm pellets on pole and 8mm pellets on the lead. The wind was really awarked and did hinder presentation. The peg came good in the last 40 mintues, which was a little to late for me to pull it back, and Stich had beat me by 10lb...

48 fished the match
Its funny, I said to Jon Walker yesterday that I would love to draw end peg at Lechlade by the pub and what do I go and do? Draw the best peg on the river.... no pressure then.
I kitted up a mountain of gear.... and it was an organised chaos. Paz said to target perch, music to my ears from arguably the best angler on the Upper Thames. However, the match started so slow, was worried as a good 45 mintues had gone and I was worried as the 6 meter, 14 meter and 14.5 meter chop line was unproductive with you 3 bleak. I was lucky as I had a run on the chop and had 12 perch on the bounce. This was a good run, Bob Davis come up and advise me that my 5lb was good in my section ( 1 hour 30 mintues in).
The match was tough, I caught best on a Colmic Stream 1 gram, 0.152 F1 Spider, 0.09 stream with Hayubussa 128 size 18 hook and various sizes of worm. Positive rig wasn't too great. I had 5 bonus perch, biggest about a pound and really disappointed to only catch 5 roach.
Team wise we won it on the day. Gordon League lost on section wins count back, 3 - 2
