Manor Farm leisure

Peg 9 middle.
52lb. 
Won lake. 
6th overall.
36 Fished.



Winter match fishing is always about been a little lucky with the draw bag, as the fish do shoal up more in cold weather and therefore you could be sat on a "shed full" or "bung hole". However, the beauty of Manor Farm Leisure is that Dave will spread you around the lakes and where possible peg the pegs have been producing, so hopefully you will be in for a few bites wherever you draw.

I drew peg 9 Middle Pool, which is an alright area, as your almost in the  middle if the lake and it fished better down this end of the lake. But fish do have fins and do swim, therefore the early pegs and late pegs could be a lot better, which is the norm, as the top end of Middle Pool is deeper.

had an enjoyable few hours, caught 5 on the bomb and bread and had 12 fish on the pole. The last couple of hours was really tough. After 1.30pm i should of gone to the pub, as i didn't catch, which did cost me a frame place, so was pleased to win the lake, but disappointed not to make a frame place.

Ash Pool fished well, with the overall top 5 coming from the lake. Neil Mckinnon won the match with 83lb, he also won yesterday on Peg 18 Ash Pool with 100lb!
