Ivy House Lakes

Peg 25
1st place.
13 fished.

I really fancied my peg today, there was fish blowing all over my peg before the start of the fishing match.
I caught a few fish at 13 meters on the deck on pellets, i had a stocky carp first drop.  Caught about 30lbish out and 140lb down the edge. Great days fishing, put my new Colmic F3 Carpa pole through its paces!

Rolfs Lake

Peg 9
32lb of carp (4)
40lb of bream.
13 fished.

I hoped to try and do 100lb plus of skimmers today, but it wasn't to be, peg 9 is an area that is capable of doing this kind of weight. But i couldn't line them up, so at 5.30pm i decidede to fish for carp, which didn't happen. I had one nice 16lber at 7.20pm, Steve camera man Waters took a photo. After the match, my platform was solid with fish!!
Pete Archer won the match with 180lb on peg 7. Fair play. Mark newbold was 2nd 164lb for 2nd. Ian had 109lb for 3rd. Caught some BIG units down the edge!

Oxford Summer League - Round 1

E3 (road side)
9lb 14oz 8.
Section win
2nd overall
Team came 2nd.

I haven't fished a silver fish match since the Angling Trust Winter Semi on Kennet and Avon canal, where I blow out on an end peg!

I do love canal fishing, but I do fear that team fishing is on rapid decline, as our Oxford Summer Leage has gone down to six teams.   So the days of big fishing matches on natural venues a thing of the past?? I hope not, especially as everybody in match caught plenty of roach, they may if been small, but as an average, I would I imagine we average over 100 roach per angler. So 36 x 100 is 3600 roach. Wow. The canal is full of fish. 

I had an enjoyable day, caught about 180 roach for 5lb and have 5 small skimmers and a very lucky bream!
