Rivvy today and with what looked like a beautiful day ahead of me as I set out this morning with the sun shining down, it really didn't go to plan I'm afraid to say, especially with me hoping to stealing a march the bloggy scene with my arch rival and Wigan pal away in his smugglers! Anyway as superstitious as hell and not a piece of wood to be seen, drawing peg 13 didn't do anything for me today as I wash quickly predicting. In fact getting straight to the point I've blanked!
Yes after all the vibes of feeling really confident on this 'beautiful' venue, on arriving once again today the water was again up another 5ft, leaving cloughie no option other than to leave the sandy point out and split the match evenly on the walls. Opting to target a 50m Line from the off, with a shorter line at 30 which I left for an hour and a half, I've had only one tap with under an hour to go, with all of us to bring fair struggling for a bite. Well done either side though taking a skimmer one side and two and a roach the other. What have I done wrong? well I've hoped to pull fish into the peg today and probably give it to much from the off with the ten fully loaded big un's and to be honest I've fished big baits looking for a slab or decent skimmer. Looking down in the water at the old peg number 18 which is normally behind us, even kidding myself didn't even give me any hope against my superstitions today, but on saying that, i was still a whole lot luckier than the poor people in car accident that blocked the road over the Rezzy for the last two hours and having to be cut out. Great company Once again though on this feeder scene with colourful Martin Ormrod keeping me smiling with his perkiness and crazy comments. Well done Chris Stephens who again took the top honours with a 7.12 winning weight, awesome pal! And of course the section winners.After all that and getting one in for the B's hoping there both enjoying the sun, 'were living a dream! Love it!!
