Well had my first winter league match today , it was a hard start.
It was the first round at Lower Heath fisheries, Beoley and what a bad day , i am still damp after the torrent and gales we had to endure, but thankfully i came 3rd with 3lb 3oz , my actual weight was 5lb 5oz but all carp count as a pound. I could have been 2nd but 2 lost carp cost me. I was fishing a no 3 elastic, as i was going for silvers and because its about 8 foot deep, i do not think i was striking hard enough to set the hook. . Tony Pallet , the fishery manager won with 10lb 10oz,so well done tony.
I cannot wait until the next round, even after the down pour.
