Instead of my normal early draw I decided to wait till nearer the end, when I went into the tin there were 4 tickets left, 111/112/128 and 81, none of which I would mind but I would like to avoid 81 if possible, I needn't have worried as Chris Fox pulled that one out , I dipped in and had 128 stuck to me , at last I was not on Cary. Glen Bailey won the short pope match yesterday with over 200lb , mainly on paste down his right hand margin, no paste with me so today it was going to be meat at 5mtrs, then pellet shallow and deep under an overhanging branch at 14 mtrs to my right , also pellet on the deck at the end of the spit, and a pellet rig for my right hand margin
By the end I had 26 carp and a few silver's, not to bad really as I have had a torrid day with lost foulers , one of my.worst days with that problem, but I weighed in 133.11 which I new was going to be no good today for a Brown envelope,
1st on the day was Steve Shaw on 110 with 222.4, Steve caught fishing around his peg with pellet on the lead.
2nd Tim Ford on 132 with 209.3
3rd was Alex?????? On 123 with 167.8
4th Scott ?????? on 118 with 157lb
5th Scott Russell on 111 with 152.12
6th me on 128 and David simpkins on 102 with 133.11.
Off down there again on Sunday for the last of the spring league matches, if I can win my section I have an outside chance of sneaking into the overalls. No doubt I will be back on Cary.
