I fished Saturday and Sunday this week, todber manor on Saturday and Chilton trinity on Sunday.
I travelled down with Chris Fox on Saturday, with a breakfast stop at cannards, and to be fair it was very nice, they had an older lady in the kitchen doing the food and she was very good, so 4.5 on the ainscough scale. Got to the draw and found John candy had a new assistant match Secretary, non other than the colonel himself, Nigel Sanders, John doesn't let him right anything or play with the money but he has been entrusted with the fishery stapler.
3rd place was Fred Roberts with 106
4th Steve Lee with 96.12
5th Gary o,Shea with 96.1
6th Nick merry with 92.14
Ash Tompkins 35.12 next to me
2nd me with 24.8 of accidentals
The match was sponsored by marukyu, so a big thanks to them, always good when suppliers and manufactures get involved, its always appreciated.
Now for Sunday and round one of my short pole series at Chilton trinity, only the topset and three more allowed , so after a breakfast at the copper kettle cafe in w s m it was down to the fishery, 24 fishing again this year so sold out again, so thanks all for turning up.
Misha drew for me and handed me 27 which is in the middle of the Carpark bank, not an ideal draw.and it turned out to be a difficult section, I can't right to much about it really as it was a bit of a non event really , I ended up with 8 carp 2 skimmers and a perch, I had two carp shallow , 6 on the deck and a skimmer and a perch and another skimmer down the edge .
The early leader was Joe McMahon on peg 17 catching shallow , obviously he had his tactical talk from his dad before the start and had the forthought to do the opposite, Chris Fox down on peg 6 did his best to chase him down but never had a fish in the last hour and a quarter , but then again nor did Joe, but he had done enough to win with 119lb, with fish to 18lb, well done him.
3rd was "our" Dave , Dave Evans on 32 with 88. 7
4th Martin rayet on 8 with 78.11
5th Clayton Hudson on 15 with 62.9
6th John white on 14 with 58.2
Silver's went to Martin McMahon , who must have listened to what Joe told him to do as he ended up with 17lb of whitebait off peg 13.
