Alders Farm Fishery - Round Five

Peg 5 Pines
Won section
1st place overall
28 fished

The match

The lads opted for me to go on peg 5 on Pines Lake, which is one of the best pegs on the lake.  Unfortunately Liam was on Peg 1 Pines, which was a VERY poor draw, as your cut off by the pegs on dam wall.  So I suggest to Liam, to fish a tidy pellet match in open water and maggots and micros down the edge, long!!!

The wind was horrendous, I tried to fish it 13 meters of my Colmic Airon F44 and did manage to catch 7 carp, but presentation was nightmare and the guy to my left was sacking on a pellet feeder and my bomb and corn or boilie wasn't right.  So changed to a pellet feeder and 20 yards after a hour do thirty minutes and it transformed my peg, my Next Adventure 45 rod was getting ripped in!!!  I had a steady flow of fish and was pleased to win the section, as I felt I wasted my first hour and thirty minutes!!! 

My hat blew off three times, in the lake twice!!!

Alders Farm is a beautiful venue.

Liam Dennick a star of the future for sure

Alders Farm - Round 4

Peg 17
4th in section

Colmic are still overall second in league at the moment.  Colmic have 101 points and GOT Baits have 110.  See all the results below.

Colmic's Mark Malin won the match.  Great result, especially as he has never seem Alders Farm before....

My match was frustrating, caught everything bar one fish in the first hour.   Had 5 carp 14.5 meters on 0.1 float, with 0.152 and 0.125 stream and Colmic WN501 18. Then one more at 16 meters at 1.10pm.  

The lead line failed to produce, popped up expander, pellet, corn and Boilie failed to get a bite.  No liners, nothing on my Colmic Next Adventure 45 rod... gutted, let the team down

32 Boundary Pool
2nd overall
Won section
16 anglers fished the match
Manor Farm's F1 carp are stunning
 I for once choose the right day to come fishing, as yesterday was horrendous weather, today was just wet!!   We have day a lot of cold rain the last few days, so was concerned that it would fish hard and it saw did!  The first three hours saw me with 4lb to 5lb, thought I was going to get some MEGA stick on Facebook for drawing a flyer and not catching!!!  However, lucky enough fish switched on in the last 2 hours, especially the last thirty minutes as everybody was catching.

I fished 4mm pellet to a Jon Walker pellet float, 0.135 F1 Spider Line (main line), 0.10 Colmic Stream (hooklength), 18 Colmic 501 hook with 1.5mm Colmic Hollow.

I had maybe 4lb tops at 1.30pm and lucky enough a few fish switched on.  Last 30 minutes saw me catch 7 decent F1's.

Peg 19 Wood
11 fished

A lovely looking lake, and hopefully one day I'll catch some fish from it??

I had a good solid start, first 40 minutes I had 3 carp and 1 f1, with some tiny F1's.  Dripping in micro's and 4mm expander on the hook.  But the peg was fading away, started a new line at 18 meters of my Colmic Airon F44 pole.   Then started to big pot maggots, nothing crazy but this seemed to kill the peg, hooked 4 carp in last hour and lost all 4, fouled hooked.   I should of been blind folded and more patient.....  The peg was worth 50lb

Had a lesson either side! Rob Gruppy caught well on maggots and gave me a whopping and Paul next door caught mainly F1's on pellets in open water.

Peg 22 Windmill
Only 5 fished

With the Winter League on the other lakes and the British weather at it's normal self, unfortunately this match was always going to small.  We had wind gusts of excess of 40mph, I was confident enough to fish with my Colmic Airon F44 in the wind and used it at 13 meters.  It was tough at times to hold still, but used a 2 foot line between Jon Walker Pellet float and pole tip, to allow a bit of play from the wind.

The tow was a problem, with me only 30 yards away from the end of Windmill Lake, the tow was very strong to the right and this was going to be a potential issue with foul hooking fish when tying to present bait.   Therefore my floats were slightly bigger and very stable.

I honestly couldn't figure it out.  The fish wouldn't settle in the 10 foot of water, and couldn't catch shallow, only had two roach and two small F1's at three foot.   I caught five small carp, about 30 F1's, two skimmers and a few roach.  Nice days fishing.  I do enjoy Windmill Pool.

Alders Farm Fishery

Peg 15 Pines
4 points out of 9
Team is third overall in league

A bit rough today, drew the shallowest part of the lake, and the deepest part was 4 foot.  Bright sunshine, i was going to be trouble.  I caught first forty minutes, 4 carp and a tench and then the last 30 minutes which was 2 carp.  It was proper grim.

I fished:.

Colmic Airon F44 pole
Colmic 2.5mm Hollow elastic
Colmic Spider Line 0.152 to 0.125 stream and banded pellet.
18 Drennan carp match hook.  Mirco band.
0.1 gram Jon Walker pellet diamond.

Frank Donachie won his section

Glen Picton was third in his section.

Antony had to go home.

So we had 20 points on the day, which was a great result considering our draw and only three anglers fishing.  Well done to Team Colmic, we are still third overall in the league with three move rounds to go.
