Manor Farm Leisure

Peg 29 windmill
Won lake
1st overall
15 fished

I was pleased to draw Windmill lake, as it fished really well yesterday and it was out of the wind today.

I ensured that I had more positive rigs today, so kitted up 
1 gram rig with 0.153 spider line to 0.125 stream and 14 501. 
0.8 gram x 2. Same as above, but with 14 and 16 501
0.6 gram 0.135 spider line to a 0.103 stream 16 501
0.3 gram 0.153 spider line to a 0.125 stream 16 501
0.4 gram 0.135 spider line to 0.103 stream 18 Drennan carp match.

I use colmic airon F44 POLE.

Elastics were Colmic Hollow 1.5 and 1.8mm

Bait simple. Pellets and more pellets.

The match didn't go as planned.  I thought it would be soild with stockies... My first fish was after a worrying 12 minutes which was a common carp about 2lb.  The baggin rig was replaced with 0.6 gram rig, which was better! But line was too short which hinded my presentation, also felt soft pellets wasn't right, unlike yesterday.  So got off my box and set up another rig, but had 3 foot between my pole and pole tip. This may seem excessive, but worked well, the rig wasn't getting jerked around and the pole was way off the water, which I do think helped in the gin clear water (less shadow over the water).

I had a good run of fish about 1pm. Nothing crazy, but an eight pound carp and 3 BIG F1'S in a short space of time was a relief.  I had some big skimmers as well!!

4 carp for 20lb
10lb skimmers
30lb of f1's

Great days fishing.
