20 anglers fished the match
After 2 hours I had lost all 4 carp I had hooked, one down the edge which was a foul hooked animal and three out in open water which came off within seconds, one did break me!!
I caught on and off up in water with pellets, I had a couple of big F1 carp and a few stockies. Then I went down the edge with maggots one side and corn and 2mm pellets the other. Caught a few stockies and carp up to 8lb, no units until after the match. Wow, the lake came alive at 7pm.
Gear used down the edge.
