Had a really bad week with a 5/9 , 4/9 ,9/9 and the fourth day i fish my favourite water of the week on peg 34 of the right-hand arm of the lake.......next to the man .....Steve Ringer. I know Steve to say '' hi'' to as i have fished with him in the Makins Winter leagues. Today he drew peg 35 and its normally the peg to win off.
Steve starts the match by potting in meat at 14metres and fishes feeder to the far side with groundbait and caster in the feeder. After an hour he is 5-1 in front of me with fish and after about 3 hours ......i think he was about 11-4 on fish........but then i struck back at him and took some serious 'animal' carp in the margins to 8lb size on red-meat. Steve responded also by fishing margins and at the final whistle he had won the section with about 90+ lbs to my 79lbs. I got second place and learnt alot from the full-time angler......he is a gentleman !
Steves weigh in and confirmation of his section win
Carp know him by name at Bolingey :-))
Adam Wakelin from the Whiteacres fishing shop staff completes the weigh in . His arms must be strong as he lifts and holds an average of 1500lb of fish every match times 5 days !!! is 7500lbs of fish for the week !!!........he does that all year in all the other Whiteacres run matches.
