So another invite from crescent angling club to fish another match, this time on April’s roadside.Last time I fished there it was a fairly new fishery with only 2 waters , now it’s overgrown and untidy .
This was my swim of which I started out on bomb and pellet to the far bank .I kept plugging away pinging pellets with only one carp for my efforts .I decided to try my pole line at 8metres.First put in and a lovely tench, followed by a crucian and a lovely mirror carp, then nothing .It was a difficult day all round from whispers up and down the bank .The rain arrived so it was brolly up .
I managed another lovely common eventually but couldn’t get a consistent run of fish .At 3pm I could see carp on the far bank so decided to fish the tip again .I hooked 2 carp that came of followed by 3 nice carp .As I cast out again quickly it was all out , I knew I had a not bad weight but knew it wouldn’t get me in the prizes .
1st Kevin 27Lb
2nd Alan 22Lb
3rd Mike 21Lb
Me 19 lb 10
Close but no cigar , till the next time .
