Spring League. 4th Round. Hungerford

Second in my section
92 fished
4th on my board out of 23.

I tried and failed for a bonus perch early in the deep water.  Then had a quick look on the skimmer line, as these fish tend to feed very early or late.  No bites.  Head down on squatts for a bite a chuck and had quick looks for skimmers, caught 1 about 12oz.  Which gave me false hope.  I should of squatted it all day.... but thought I had a chance of big perch and skimmers.  However, I had another great days fishing this week.

Team wise, we came 8th and 9th overall.  Which is respectable in that field of anglers, but a bit disappointing.  My points weren't great, out of 8 points I had 3, 3, 8 and 7 points.  So average of 5.25 out of 8.  In the individual league I came 22nd out of 92 anglers.... disappointing.

Thanks to Ditch for running the league.  Great job.  Also John Williams for pegging it.  For me, I wont fish the league next year as I feel I struggle to compete against the canal lads and also the canal this time of year is brutal.  Great if you on them, but very tough to stay motivated if your not..... when I saw anglers win sections with 9oz's... time for me to stay away.
