So it was'nt to bad. Well lets get on with the match.
I drew peg 12, which was an end peg. I had an over hanging tree to my left,at about 3 metres.
so i set up 2 tops one for the inside under the tree, and the other at 3 metres in front of me.
The whistle went at 10.00am for the all in.I fed both swims with sweetcorn by hand.
Started catching small carp from the off,in the swim in front of me. After an hour the carp started getting bigger. they were averaging between 12 oz, and 1 and a half pound. Jason onthe next peg was bagging big time. This is how it went for me for most of the match. Went down by the tree for the last couple of hours. Started catching straight away,and from then until the end of the match i was catching steady, with a few bigger carp showing. Biggest i had was about 6 pound. The all out came to quickly at 4.00pm

Total weight between the anglers was 942lb. not a bad days fishing.
In fairness to trevor he really had a bad day. lost a section to is pole in the water. So he put is waders on to go in ,and slipped down the bank,and went in up to is waist. Not only did he lose is pole section,he also knackered is mobile,which was in is side pocket.Thats the reason he did not weigh in.Did we all feel sorry for him. Well after about half an hour of rolling around with laughter. yeah we felt sorry for him.
