  • 10lb 2oz
  • Section Win
  • Sections of 6
  • 36 fished the match

I haven't fished a river for almost a year, so i was and still a bit apprehensive about it all, as I felt wasn't prepared!

I've been told that the river is fishing really well and Folly is the place to be. So I drew Medly at Black Jacks. Paz advised it could be tough.

Carrying 2 ton of gear about a mile wasn't too fun!  A few issues on the way with peoples trolley's and as we all carry way too much gear! 

Had an enjoyable day, I had 6lb of perch on Lob Worms and 4 lb of hemp roach in the last 1 hour 30 mins. Lots 2 to pike. Missed too many bites. Should of had more.
