Had a few days holiday off work and decided to book myself onto the open
match at Aston Eyre. I've drawn out peg 22 which was over the far side,
with 16 people in the match I decided just to keep things simple and
have a steady days fishing. I've set up a 8m line, margin line, bomb rod
and waggler rod. So I've started off on the bomb with an 8mm banded
pellet and 30 seconds in Ive caught my first carp about 9lb. Chucked the
bomb back out and had another 6 carp in an hour and half
and then the bites started to go a bit patchy, so I've gone out on the
pellet waggler and had another 2 carp. I've struggled to catch in the
last 2 hours only having 2 more fish not being able to catch on any of
the pole lines only the bomb and waggler that has worked today.
ended the match with 71lb 8oz which was only enough to put me in 8th
place but it was a really enjoyable days fishing and I will definitely
be back again as this was my first time there in a match.
