Day 4
Peg 2
69lb (42lb 8oz skimmers and 27lb Carp)
3rd in section.

I was concerned with my draw as the wind was off my back.

I had a challenging day, and lost a 15lb mirror at netting range which has cost of the festival and to rub salt into the wound I lost 2lb bream at the net and lost the silver pools on the day. Bad angling!
Well done to Gary Etheridge for winning the festival. Also i would like to thank Andy and Karen for running the event and some fanastic food!
