2013 - 23rd Nov. Norrkoping slider match and 6 hardy souls battled the cold.

Decided to fish a slider match at the C section at the Norrkoping match length . The rule is you must fish 20 metres out and only use slider/bolo/feeder , no pole of whip.

We assembled and took a draw at 9:00 AM fished 10:30 to 14:30.

The weather was cold at about 0 deg. C with a keen wind to our right which really got through your clothing . It did me as i forgot my Bib and Brace and Jacket !  ….. dohhhh!  I had my thermals on but only 2 hooded fleeces , woolly hat and neck warmer !

Today's office for all

To my left is Christer Engvall

To my right is ??

My peg with a view !

It got really cold for me later and my back teeth started to chatter but on a very cold day the fish fed and everyone caught well. Quality of the fish was superb.

Rogers son with a few nice samples.

Dad himself  with an excellent weight of 10 kilos

 Marcus just short of 10 kilos

 Kent also the same just short of 10 kilos and no holes in his net this time !

 Christer with cold nose and a good 10 kilo bucket full.

Mr.Freezing bloody cold and a smaller weight than most of the field.

 Todays top weight with 19 kilos all on the feeder/bomb …… brilliant fishing , i should have done the same.    

                  1st weigh in

2nd weigh in

Happy man with best weight of the day and a section win

Roger with the spoils of the other section.

What a great match on a very cold day but such is the value of this venue it never fails to give good weights and today it proved it with some 70 kilos of fish between 7 of us .

They are fishing the town tomorrow , shame i cannot make it . Hopefully if the weather is okay then next weekend could be good to fish TROSA.    :-))

Well done to Kent and Christer of the SWEA club for organising the event.
