2018 - Sunday November 4th - Greenhill AC match on the Carp Lake - Maggot only ?!

Greenhill steeped in history off being the 'Friendly-club' and its tradition was never more true than on Sunday as the local cracks came together and threw a few quid in the pot to see who could get the better of each other . Match Secretary John Kilby decided on a maggot only match with a winner for Carp nets and a winner for silvers net.

A bunch of nutters !

Well the match got under way and for the first hour Mick Carr screamed into the lead with 6 lumps on the maggot feeder ! My start was okay with about 3 silvers and an F1. Later into the match established 2 feed areas and rotated them using some 2 pints or reds all match , little and often all the time.
Towards the end myself and Brian Envis were trading blows with continual carp in the 3-5lb class . However Brian edged me out by a good 10lb . So the Former Leicester Likely lad has traded his river gear for Mud Pig fishing , shame as he was a cracking angler on the Trent.

First weigh in was 26 kilos

2nd weigh in 13 kilos

Can i edge the Envo !? First weigh in 23 kilos

Unlucky the bottom 4-5 anglers as there is nothing wrong with their standard , the fish were not having it proper where they were .

And Phil Ackerley won the silvers match with 720g
