Manor Farm Leisure

Peg 27 Middle Pool
111lb 12oz
1st place
10 fished the match

Finally drew a right flyer.   So fancied it for a few.  It was a simple match, bomb and bread and pellets long on the pole.

Started on the bread, three popped up discs at 4 inches to a 0.152 Spider Line to a 14 QM1. The tip dropped back, a slight twitch on the reel to ensure it wasn't a line bite and no tension, so a gentle strike and clipped up and 8lber in net.  So chucked it in same place, and my rod almost got dragged in and another 7lber in net and chucked it again and had an F1.  So a lot of fish in area, so started to ping 4mm pellets on pole line.  Chucked lead and bread for 10 mintues, no bites.  So un clipped and chucked again a bit further, another ten mintues, no bites.  So chucked it to my right, 5 mintues and no bites.  Bugger.  So onto the pole and it was solid.  Caught F1's really well.  

Come the weigh in, I was surprised to weigh in 111lb, after admitting to 80lb.  It really doesn't take long to do a weight.   These F1's are chunky weight builders.

Loving my new Colmic Airon F66 Pole.

Caught roughly 30 F1's

Caught 5 carp and a few huge F1's
