Sunday lunch for the expectants
First 2 hours for me was excellent as i captured many small roach , chub and Perch . The hours 3 and 4 it slowed down . I did lose a very good chub and had perch and Roach of a respectable size taken by the Pike , again !! Eventually in the last hour i started to catch Gudgeon (proper gobis) , small Roach and Perch but without the Pike i might have got a few more LB's , but that is fishing and even though the Pike have been my nuisance over the last few matches you have to say that they are here because of a very large population of silver fish.
On to the weigh-in and Peg 1 with Sam Merry who proved to be the winner of the Abbey with 23lb+ using 16's laggy on 0.17 line and big lobs ……the peg looked frightening but Sam mastered the conditions and came thro' handsomely.
The author with his catch ….well done Sam Merry! ….23lb
peg 2 and Cam Hughes took an excellent 13lb for section 2nd
3rd in section for me with 10-11
(Lost chub and Pike taken Roach several times cost me dearly again !)
Rob took a great catch of small fish for 5lb+
Joff with a all caster catch of 9.5lb of prime Dace and Roach
