A mild dry day today.. But 30 – 40 mph gusts of wind made things a bit more challenging today.!!
Wallace Lake was used in the match for the first time this year… So no one really knew what to expect. Unfortunately its a very good pole Water… And the conditions today didn’t help it one bit.
On the plus side, everyone caught a few fish… Mainly on a very short pole line, and on the feeder rod.
Steve Royle drew an end peg yet again.. In the shape of hot peg 32.!
He opted to fish his pole line into a quiet spot near the bank which was reasonably calm and out the wind, and the carp must have liked the area too as Steve caught steadily throughout the match catching carp to weigh in 55lb 12oz, winning the section and Overall match.
Section two was a little more closely contested, with ide and silvers making up most of the weights. Craig Duncan was the exception catching a few carp to add to his weight, weighing in 20lb 2oz to win the section.
On Queensberry Water section 1 was the place to be, similarly to last week.
Symon Willan was fortunate to draw end peg 17, one of the more fancied pegs given the conditions.
Symon opted for the method feeder tight to the far bank and caught carp steadily throughout the match to win comfortably with a very respectable 53lbs.
Geoff Whittle managed 40lb + from the next peg, with Gerry Blythe weighing in a decent 37lb + from the next peg again… A lot of fish from those 3 pegs.!
Section two was another close one.. And only a few ounces would separate the top two.
David Corcoran came out on top with a net consisting mainly of silvers for 31lbs 8oz, with a few carp helping to boost his weight.
Don Lines had a similar net of fish but fell 8oz short… Weighing in 31lbs exactly.
All in all a decent day’s fishing for most, with everyone adapting to fish the conditions as best they could.. Well done guys.!!
