2014 - GREENHILL AC - Thurlaston Moat - Trev Reynolds cup match

           A sunny start to the day greeted the 9 that fished this match. The Moat looked magnificent in its glorious summer state and many fish were topping in the early morning . Could this be a day of huge weights all around ?

5 minutes from the off

It was a strange day of good fishing in the first hour then blank periods of no activity . The presentation had to be very sensitive with lighter lines and smaller hooks just to get bites . The floats had to be 'dotted' down just to register a bite . In the end i took the honours with 19lb , John Kilby on peg 1 had 16lb but lost a good 10lb to rogue carp, Andy did well to take 11lb including some nice chub and golden tench.

Peg 2 and top weight but it was not easy but the lighter approach paid off

John Kilby - MAS Winter league match angler was unlucky to have a very tight fighting area in peg 1 and with fish lost could have took top spot !
