Manor Farm Leisure - Island and Boundary Pool

  • LPeg 27 Island Pool
  • 60lb 4oz
  • Won Lake
  • 2nd overall
Pretty pleased with the draw, peg 27 is normally a good winter peg and I done well off it a few weeks ago in hurricane winds, which made it impossible to fish a long pole, even my Colmic one 😜

Really slow start, no bites on feeder, so shipped out 16 meters of my Colmic F44 pole, which was maybe a little ambitious with 15 mph winds!  But hey, I had a good run for a hour and then it died.  So chucked a pellet feeder tight to far bank and caught a couple F1's and one 8lb carp.  

Middle part of match was awful, never had a bite or indication for almost two hours and Gary Watts walked past and brought me and Liam some luck.  I had 5 fish in last hour, one 5lb carp at the "death" which was lucky enough to sneak me in the frame.
