I got steve(cheesy) Collins draw for me, and he handed me peg 1, it's been a good peg recently, steve.seager won off it on Saturday with 68lb so it should be ok today,
I also set up a meat.rig for my right hand margin, but I never had a bite on that , even though it was 3 foot deep there, my last rig was a .3g to fish caster at 5 mtrs.
I started off using my meat rig shallowed up to dob maggots around the peg, but all I had was one small roach, so binned that approach and went into the 5mtr caster line, I had a few.small roach and two good skimmers ,also hooked two carp and landed one, I tried the deep pellet lines a couple of times but never had a twitch, I did get one carp and lost one on the longer meat line and had 4 on top of the shelf on banded 6mm, Adrian Clark on three had a better match fishing soft pellet over micro 14 mtrs to his right down the middle, I did get a couple more better skimmers from the caster line and some waspy perch and small roach, but it's fished hard, which as I said I don't mind as it makes you think a bit more . Stu Barnett opposite on 24 had an early bath , only.managing two carp, one in the mouth and one in the tail,
Top weight on the day went to Bob gullick on peg 15 with 109lb, catching all his fish against the island on banded 6mm hard pellet over potted 4,s, so well done to him
,top silver,s weight went to me with 11lb+, weigh sheets below.
