A 32 km drive found myself in Trosa and meeting the Trosa boys plus the other teams for this DM match. What a fabulous bunch of guys always smiling , willing to talk and always having fun like Percy here who donated this handuk - towel to me as a going away present , he is a case , brilliant guy who like his club friends i will dearly miss.
I set myself up some 20 metres from the match and erected 2 x 6m whips and a 5metres whip with 2.5gr floats with 0.16/0.13 to Tubertini 14s/16s . Also had a stick float set up with 5BB Warren stick to 0.12 bottom to 18s kamasan long shank.
Office for the day .....fabulous weather !
3 bags which included VDE Turbo / VDE Supercup and a bag or brown dispersing leam.
Maggots/pinkies/corn/worms the usual menu board.
The match attendees hung around waiting for the all important draw while i started my fishing . Well ! after 1 hour i had taken 2 small perch and most of the field were watching and some were stating : shall i fish for bleak? . At that stage i would say yes but surely it will not continue like this ?
As soon as the match started i started to take a steady stream of Bjorkna ,skimmer and Perch . Most of the fish were in the 100 to 400 gram category with larger specimens of 600-800gr amongst them.
Lost 2 very big fish close in which i estimate both to be Bream of a larger size. Had only 1 roach be it a good one .
Splendid days fishing with a terrific bunch of friendly approachable anglers which just made the day just the best !
