    15th Mandy 1 - 13 peg 50
    16th John 1 - 12 peg 58
    17th Joe 0 - 1 peg 4

    The bait we received was 1kg Method mix, tin of corn, tin of meat 4mm cubed, 1kg 4mm pellets, handful of 8mm pellets, some pumped 4mm expanders and half a pint of red maggots.

    First up a big well done to CovBaz who organised the bait and most importantly kept it all a secret. There was only one complaint and that was that there was too much choice, not the worm and castor we were expecting to play to someone strength

    The draw was made and the last two pegs in the bag happened to be the two flyers and where the 5ways fish live and hang out, bit like the Devon for the two anglers who were to occupy these out and out flyers for the day One of the anglers doing his best impression of Lonnie, the banjo-playing boy, in the 1972 film Deliverance started well on the Andy Finley designed feeder by preston until the start of the 5th hour when he chucked it up a tree and broke his 6lb main string and never had another fish costing him the match. Next to Milo on 47 was the now regular 'Framer' Coxs62 who has improved his fishing no end in the last couple of years, another solid performance saw him catch on the feeder to the over hanging tree on his fish hang out flyer.

    A surprise angler in the frame today was Alan who could do with getting CovBaz to get his bait every week if its going to get him in the top 4 , Alan caught 7 carp from peg 52 by first casting to the island but later on dropping the method feeder at his feet in the margin for some better fish. Thats why I never catch well I the margins, I've been using a pole

    Big Subway Bob who had a good session the night before caught steady on the method for 10lb in a poor area where Joe could only manage a gudgeon which was bettered by a 3 year old fishing with her dad a few pegs up where she snarred a dumpy roach, shes joining next season so watch out Joe. Bamyam the worm whisperer never had his bait of choice and had about a pound until seconds to go when he found a single carp on meat from his margin.

    Having drew the far end of the lake for the third time I was not happy as it is a lot further to the island and with there being more water on the lake than ever before i was faced with 18 meters to get to the far shelf and having only 16 meters of pole meant I had to get closer so out came the platform, which hasn't seen the water since Ireland, and after being positioned 2 meters out it enabled me to reach where the 5ways fish always seem to be. I fished the far shelf all day and had 10 carp and 2 skimmers on paste and meat, losing a monster halfway through under the tree to my left. I foul hooked a 4lb carp in the margin on a bare hook as well, SOLID!!!! I never thought I had beat Milo but his poor last hour really cost him.

    Special mention to Dave who was fishless for 4 and a half hours before his patience paid off taming 3 margin specimens on his mighty black magic for 15lb 8oz and 6th place and a B section win, a valuable lesson there, never give up, winners never quit and quitters never win!!!!

    Also well done to my pairs partner Porky, another potential bananna skin averted and when he gets into this paste lark he'll be shooting up the table

    Next up Bishops bowl on the 10th June.
