Into the draw at 9.30 and I pull out peg 6, means nothing to me really , I was told that a tree had blown over off the island giving me a nice lead chucking a new feature, I was told it was to far to thrown a wag to but I set up a 10g affair, and it was easily attainable, the pole rigs today were a deep and shallow one for hard pellet at 14 mtrs and a meat rig for down to my right by an overhanging Bush, I must say this is a really attractive natural lake , with plenty of cover.and a nice depth of about 5 foot in front of me, for company I had Rob dowden on 7 who would no doubt be trying to catch on the lead , casting his whole slice of bread to the island, on my right was Keith Fisher on 6 who was going to be silver bashing today.
Dom may have done better if he hadn't had to go for a swim to retrieve his top 5 , which a carp managed to steal off him !!!!!.
Luckily my good spell in the middle of the match was enough for today as I put 162.12 on the scales to beat travelling partner Martin lenaghan into 2nd.
4th. Stitch Williams on 9a with 55.8
Silver's went to Mike Owens on 11 with 20.12 of mainly skimmers on soft pellet.
