Phil with his net of carp and ide weighing 11 lb 11 oz including the fish that he forgot for second place
Sqeeky with his third placed net of 8 lb 01 oz, beating suggsy by 5 oz
My winning net of 15 lb , didn't realise how big the ide were until they were next to a 7 lb carp.
Felt really bad when i fluked that carp with 20 mins to go, but upon reflection.. think i have been done in that fashion by warden and Sqeeky in the past...
The venue fished harder that i expected , i had 4 of my 5 ide in the first 2 hours and even tried scratting around for bits just to see the float go under but my swim was barren until that lump arrived... no fun on 0.08 line and a small silverfish maggot size 18 and no 5 elastic.. Thanks to Suggsy for the banter throughout the match and for the constructive comments while that carp was playing me...
Again thanks to all for turning up and Les, great you see your copious backside on the bank again, at least the weather wasn't as bad as it was forcasted to be mid week,
they say what goes around comes around Mick don't feel to bad I have fluked a few fish in my time to beat more deserving anglers on the day today was your turn fished very hard today I think the pictures says it all awful day weather wise which had followed a awful night was never going to be easy,but hey ho that's winter fishing.big well done to all that made it.
Well done Mick well fished you did really well to land that carp on light line. It's a good job I didn't book on the match as wouldn't of made it didn't get back to Leeds Bradford till three this morning delays etc !!!
