Swindon go on tour 2013


Friday 13th

I believe the summer is officially over as the last week the temperature has dropped a lot and the rain is shocking today, and you could tell is was Friday 13th.

The plan was to drive early (4am) to get on match on Bolingey, however this sold out some we couldn’t get on, and Giwnear didn’t have a match, as there wasn’t anyone booked in.  So there wasn’t a match for us.  So we left at 9am, and pleasured fished Trelawnly pegs 16, 17 and 18.  I was peg 18, we had a fiver on for the biggest fish.   I had several carp, but my biggest was 9lb 7oz, Neil’s was 8lb and Phil’s was 12lb 3oz, so Phil gladly took my and Neil's fiver.


Saturday 14th

We were looking for a fishing match Saturday morning at 6.30am.  So Mark was on the internet looking at different venues?  Mawgan Porth, Gunners, anything else you know of??

So the 3 of us went to Mawgan Porth, fished pegs 42 (me) 42 Phil and Neil 44. 

I had 230lb 10oz

Phil 165lb 4oz

Neil 158lb 8oz
