Peg 33 Island Pool
No good (4th overall)
16 fished the match
I had a real enjoyable day today, caught some F1's and a couple of small carp on my new toy 😊 but took a big battering off the next peg though. I could catch on the lead and only had 2 carp to Paul Cassiby's 6 carp. So decided to go the pole, which was good for 40 minutes and 8 F1's but felt I wasn't completing so back on lead for one more carp, but 1.30pm I came to a standstilland knew I was never going to pull it back.....

Had a bit of a mare to begin with, hooked two carp and lost both of them!!! One I came back with a length of line and shot, and the other was foul hooked and came back with a scale. Then had 4 in a row on popped up bread..... then nothing. So on the pole and all I could catch was brown goldfish, I was going nowhere, especially as they were catching F1's to my left.
Shaun Gould started slow and then started caught F1's steady on the pole and maggots. For a 99lb, impressive weight. Second place was close bewteen Steve Rich (66lb 8) and Arthur Hicks (65lb). Steve had two late BIG carp just enough to beat Arthur by 1lb 8oz.
Me, 8 carp, 2 F1's and tiny but beautiful goldfish on the pole for a disappointing 53lb. But everyone caught and had an enjoyable day (which is the most important thing).
