Today was the pairs match at Clayton's Fishery and I'd been drawn with venue expert and bream master George Mckay.
For those that don't know Clayton's it's more a silver fish/Bream water, however there is large carp in the lakes but
today they only counted for a pound.
I was on front pond and it was pole only and George was on Ben's that was feeder only, my plan was to fish 13mts with #SonuBaits Banoffe groundbait with worms and casters in the mix and have a short line for feed maggots by hand and hopefully catch some roach and perch.
I've used #mikenolanFloats tears today for the long line they sat in the water brillant and was perfect for when the breeze got up, short I used his slime floats for fishing through the water again they was perfect.
Its fished hard and a low weigh was on the cards.
I've had some roach and the odd skimmer for 6lb-5oz, George had 7lb-11oz and for that we have just scraped 2nd overall as a pair which was brillant well pleased.😁
We both won £70 gift vouchers to spend at #ultimateDIRECT
Dad was drawn with Steve Crosskill, again the same format Steve was on the front pond with me fishing pole only, sadly Steve has had a nightmare and only scraped 2lb together. Dad was on Bens Lake and that was feeder only, he's drawn peg 6 and I'm told is a carp peg so he didn't fancy his chances, he's plodded away and caught small silvers on the short feeder line to weigh 7lb-6oz, so he didn't do to bad as 9lb won the lake.
