Peg 4 Island Pool
89lb 8oz
4th overall
Won section
20 fished.

Peg 4 Island pool, is a peg that's don't seem to get on with, I've drawn it a few times and never seem to catch enough!! Don't get me wrong it's a great peg on the day.

I left Colmic F44 pole in the bag as its so windy.   Which if you know me, I do suffer from pole fever, so was going out and out attack on the rod.  With a nasty side wind, the pellet wag was going to be difficult to present.

The 4 Colmic rods come out the bag were..

Professional 15 12 foot with 0.18 method line and 0.125 stream hook length. 8 gram waggler.   Size 18 Drennan carp match.

Professional 25, 12 foot with 0.18 Colmic Steel line. 0.145 Colimc Stream hook length.  10 gram waggler. Size 18 Drennan carp match.

New Adventure 60 11ft 0.20 Colmic method line.  Method feeder. 30 gram. 0.185 stream hook length to a 16 Drennan carp feeder hook.

New Adventure 45 11ft 0.20 Colmic Method line.  1/2 oz lead. 2 foot 0.145 stream to a 18 Drennan carp match.

It took ages to get the fish going, despite having a 5lb carp first chuck against the Island.  Then I watched everybody ask catch, especially Phil Hardwick on peg 31 Island, and Terry Winstone on peg 33. 

I had a run of F1's at 12.30 on the lead, pellet feeder and waggler.  I worked hard and rotated methods.  I would get a BIG F1 first chuck on the waggler, but quickly realised that wouldn't get another...   Swapping and rotating methods was the best way of me keep fish coming.

I was pleased to win my section off this peg, as I never seem to do well.  One day I may win off it?!
