Peg 12
118lb 8oz
2nd overall
31 fished

I haven't fished Hillview for years and I'm not sure why I've shied away from the venue?!  Drew peg 12 and was told I'd catch on pellet long.   So fished maggots and micro pellets short to begin with which resulted in one bumped fish and went long after 15 mintues had caught straight away where have been pinging pellets.

I fished 4mm fishery pellet and used 4mm on he hook.  Simple.  Feed about 3/4 of a bag.  I had 60lb of carp, up to 12lb and 58lb of beautiful F1 carp.
