Back to viaduct for this last round, so it was a stop off at cannards for breakfast, with Judith and Jason, very nice to so I will give it a 4.65, must be new owners as the waitresses are smiling instead of crying .
Judith hasn't been with me for a few weeks due to no dog sitter, but she was back today , which was nice.
I let her draw for me and expressed a wish for a peg on Cary, as on Campbell it can turn into a bit of a fish race, and at times there is no chance of getting back into the hunt once you are behind, she didn't disappoint as she pulled 96 out for me, and being on Cary means even if you fall a few fish behind there is always a good chance to catch up due to the size of the fish. For company I had local ace Dan white on 97 and Dave Evans on 95, so nice company today, Dave says very little generally but Dan isn't averse to a bit of banter. I new Dan was going to be fishing long as he enjoys that, swinging a piece of meat around shallow while feeding pellets, normally at 16/17 mtrs, that's not for , far to painful on the elbow and shoulder, so I set pellet rigs for shallow and deep at 14 mtrs, a meat rig for 5 mtrs, and a deep and shallow waggler.
At the start I began on the short meat line as an early mug fish or two can be on the cards, but not today, just one positive pull under on the float, but probably a liner, so 30 minutes in and already a fish behind Dan who had a shallow one, it was down with the short rig and out on the shallow pellet rig, I had three on that in the next hour as did Dan, so not much in it, but as is normal, unless you are prepared to go longer the fish back off out of range, so a look on the pellet wag, and one missed bite on that, so no more about that, the deep wag was next out and and after a hard 30 minutes I began to get some liners and odd bites, never busy and never busy enough to catch Dan who was always at least a couple of fish in front during the match.
Before I do the results I had a nice surprise at the draw when Clint wojtyla and Shaun kitteridge presented me with a new t shirt, which I wore for the whole match, the pictures tell it all really, but thanks lads it was much appreciated.

Well that's it for another year, thanks ever one for turning up and the reserves for helping out, also a really big thanks to Steve Evans who does all the sums during the league, I don't think it would run as smoothly without him, all those who fished the league this year will get first option to fish again next year, so if you can all let me know as soon as it would be a great help, ta.
