Manor Farm Leisure

Peg 22
60lb 8oz
But only 5 fished 😞

A little surprising and disappointing that there was only five anglers turned up for today's fishing match on Windmilll Pool.  However, for me it's just a day out for me, just want to catch some fish, and drawing peg 22 Windmill Pool is a good draw.  Was hoping for peg 24 Windmill pool, as this is my favourite peg on the whole of the complex of Manor Farm Leisure.


Peg 22 Windmill is a deep peg, one of the deepest on the complex.  It shelfs off at 9 meters and it is roughly 10 foot deep, which can be a nightmare to locate fish and foul hookers can be a problem, as the fish have a lot of water cover.  So bare that in mind.

My tackle

Colmic Airon F44 pole
Jon Walker pellet floats
0.152 Colmic Spider Line to 0.115 Colmic Stream 
18 Drennan Carp Match
1.8mm Colmic Hollow elastic


Skretting pellets, 4mm and 6mm.  No special oils or colours, straight from the bag.  Simple.  I have change baits, like yellow, white and expanders for change hook baits.  Sometimes, that can get a positive response.

Lack if stamp

Disppointed with stamp of fish, as the stockies were on the small side.  Even with bigger pellets didn't encourage larger stamp.  Terry Winstone done well again, an angler in form at the moment.

Enjoyed the match, had quite a few bites, and tried some new items of tackle from Colmic, which is due to come out in 2016.  Excited to see the launch of new tackle from Colmic.  Watch this space!!
