Fished the Viaduct Saturday open today. Went with the plan to fish a silvers match, but unfortunately the silvers weren't playing ball. I drew peg 114 on Campbell. I caught one tench, a bream and a few roach on the pole, that weighed 5lb. Started fishing the straight lead, using corn and meat on the hook, feeding very little over the top. Had a good spell through the middle part of the match, ended up with 88lb of carp, totaling 93lb overall for 2nd in the match. 23 fished, 100lb 2oz won it. Lost a good fish in the last five mins, but still had a cracking day
Today I've been to high Hayes farm fishery. I've drawn peg 22 on lake 2.
At the start I've started short on chopped worm and caster which resulted in nothing,I've then chucked out a method feeder and caught steadily on that all day
At the weigh in I've weighed 59lb 10oz which has got me third in the match so not a bad day
Well done to my dad on winning the match with 81lb 3oz
