Peg 50 Back Deans
Second in a ten peg section (21lb won it)
It was always going to be a tough day today with every peg in, (eight yard pegging). Like alot of Fish O Mania matches you hope to get some room or a feature!! Unfortunately I wasn't so lucky. I caught in the first 40 minutes in the last 20 minutes. I had 5 small carp and lost one in neighbours swim, a carp swim 6 yards into his swim, despite saying "sorry mate, fish coming through" he struck it off. On well, another 4 hours later the same again, got tangled, but got it free, but then the fish came off anyway.... I just laughed. To add salt to the wound, 21lb won the ten peg section and I had 19lb, and third was 18lb. Our end of the lake was really tough, but there were some fish caught further up, a couple of 90lb weights. I believe 160lb odd won it, by John Havery. Congratulations to him for winning and I will see him there in the Fish O Mania final with Frank Donachie. Fingers crossed for Frank, let's hope for some luck in the final.
