Four of us wanted to fish local and braved the cold weather and wind at Windmill Fishery and choose to fish the
Lake – now the 2nd !
We selected pegs that were fished last match on the Match Lake Lake
where we all had 20lb plus of small Carp. Pegs 12, 13, 14 and 15 which kept us
below the bank and out of the wind add the sun and it was comfortable fishing.
The match went like this; Dave Willmott caught a 1lb Carp first put in on paste which we all thought was signs of good things to come. Twenty minutes later Geoff Francis hooked a big Carp which bust his hook length. I hour later Dave Haines caught a 3oz Rudd on his top-set with Pinkie. Finally I foul hooked a decent Carp which didn’t get anywhere near my landing net. Match over for all those present.
No need to weigh as Dave W won the match and Dave H won the Silvers both pictured right with their catch.
At least Geoff spent some time polishing his pole. We were all very disappointed with the fishing, which we commiserated back at the pub!
