Herbie. On one of his annual matches at the lake.
Herbie had booked the lake for one of his annual visits and invite some friends from Match Fishing Scene Forums. 20 Anglers turned up eager to fish. John Bennett was down to fish also taking the numbers to 21.
The normal queue formed for the draw and people drew and walked off to get ready however when there was supposed to be 2 pegs left in the bag there was only one in there. John and Herbie were still too draw. John kindly dropped out from the match leaving Herbie with peg 4.
A few minutes later John is back fishing again as the missing peg was found on the floor. It happened to be peg 2 (flyer 😛 ) Someone must have drawn their peg and pulled out peg 2 as well. So John can still draw good pegs even when there is none in the bag lol 😀 😀
The weather today was a bit poor really for the first 2 hours with rain falling while everyone was setting up. The wind also picked up blowing down in to the little lake this time.

Fishing today was from 11am to 4pm.
As you will see by the results the lake fished very hard again with only the corner pegs producing good weights and consistent fish. After the rain went away the sun came out full blast on the lake and the carp were cursing around again.
After having no fish for 3 hours I started catching with just 20 minutes to go which is just typical 😀
Thanks for the invite Herbie, a hard day but I still enjoyed myself.
Thanks for reading. Eddie, Simon and John.
