Cob house fishery hosted our annual outing this year. After a really good breakfast in the Mayfly cafe which set us up for the day fishing on the Chestnut Pool.
We used the permanent pegs for the match, which had been selected by the fishery bailiff. With a supply of fishery feed pellets, we made our way to our pegs after picking up fishery supplied keep nets and landing nets.
The pool aerator was running throughout the match, due to the high temperature – 34 degrees poolside which could be classed as normal if you’re on holiday abroad but not when you’re match fishing in England.
The pool has a very good stamp of carp of all varieties as well as bream and tench. I know Billy got off the a great start taking two carp with his first two chucks on the pole. But I think it was Mickey that landed the first fish of the match which was a bream, and he went on to catch 44lb of bream at the weigh in. The fishing got better as the match progressed, with some very big carp being caught on pole and feeder tactics.
Terry scored his second consecutive win with 104-4, and it was good to see Rob back on the bank and taking second place with 84-8, just beating Billy in third with 81-0.
