The annual outing was held at Cob House this year, following a healthy breakfast in the Mayfly Cafe, pegs were drawn for the match on Wyatt’s Pool.
The conditions were fantastic for a days fishing, and surprisingly not many basking carp were seen. Almost everyone favoured fishing the pole onto the second shelf as a starting point. Some were fishing long pole shallow, and some started fishing the method. Meanwhile on peg 15, Jason started plundering the shoal of carp that were willing to feed in his peg. When weighing in, he commented that the first keep net that we put on the scales was in the first hour, that was 50lb 8oz. Needless to say, he continued with his method and added over 100lb to that first net. Well done Jason, you’re banned 😃. In the club result Terry on peg 5 was starting to connect with the carp being spurred on by his old man who started showing him the way, pulling carp out of the pool with ease despite his bad back. They were like a wrestling tag team with fore-arm smashes being traded with any carp that wouldn’t submit to the net.
More to follow …. pmsl😂
We weighed in a total over 829lb.
