Manor Farm Leisure - Middle Pool

  • Peg 27
  • 115lb 4oz
  • 1st place
  • 10 anglers fished the match
I was pleased to draw peg 27, as this is a very good area, also the wind is off my back so I was able to present long pole and pellet. Whereas, the pegs opposite had wind howling in their faces.

Like Neil McKinnon, my mine focus my going to be long pole at 14.5 meters, with hard pellets.

Colmic Airon F55 Pole
Vespe 2.1mm E2 Hollow Core
0.4 Jon Walker
0.165 X5000 Main Line to 0.103 Stream
18 Drennan Carp match


I had a nice day catching F1 carp from 1lb to 3lb and had a few carp to 10lb. Too be honest, the carp messed up the F1 fishing as I had a steady run of F1's and then had periods of no bites and then would have 2 or 3 carp with 20 minutes. Whereas as the F1's came frequatly, every few minutes, and I thought and Neil a had beat me, as 2pm to 2.45pm I caught nothing, lost 3 fish in that period.

All the weights came off our bank. The other section was won with a high 40lb.
