Fished the 2nd round of the wilden winter league

And as it was my birthday I ridiculously thought that I would get a good draw.....????????????????.....no chance A25 in the bowl ohhhhh nooooooo.....

Any ways after contemplating whether or not to put my keep net in to keep it dry I decided to put a plan together and made a decision I never do and that was to go to 16.5m at the start and have the other barrel in reserve as I knew it was going to be a gruelling match

X1 positive @ 16.5m
X1 negative @ 16.5m
X1 negative pellet line off the angle towards the next peg @ 15m
Short 11m line and x2 lines off the reeds at both sides

And the token waggler line

All in started on the waggler not a sniff for 1hr and a wobble on the float and carp # 1 on ......????‍♂️????‍♂️????

Went on the pole nothing over any lines????‍♂️

Went back on the wag ...carp #2????‍♂️

Went well over depth on waggler carp #3 ????????????

Off bottom ...carp # 4????‍♂️????‍♂️????????????

Back on pole long line carp...carp...carp...????????????‍♂️????‍♂️

Any ways nicked some blades off the reeds but very hard work for grams

Back on the pole carp # 14 and really struggling then a very slight lift on the float and bang skimmer about 1lb 6oz ????????????????

Just enough time to hook carp #15 and tipped 1lb 10oz on the scales which was good enough for 2nd in section ????✅

That puts me on 6points two rounds in

Very tough day and some DNW in the bowl it’s tough up there ????
