Had a great day yesterday, representing Maggotdrowners in the JJL match...Top class field, top venue, hospitality absolutely brilliant, great to meet, our team, and be part of the day ...Fishing on our lake was Peggy due to the wind, but still a great day, Joff Rogers(venue expert) one side, and the one and only Emma Pickering, the other for company, some big names struggled, in our section, and on our lake in general...For my match, I’ve had 4 carp, 10 bream, and 2 big perch, which has got me 6th in the sec🤷‍♂️... I should of done better, as I lost 5 carp to snags across the bar on the feeder, and lost 1 shallow, so possibly 5th in section was achievable..basically I’ve beat everyone to my right, but no one to my left😩, Nick put me right, as my chopped worm line made all the difference in my half of the section, catching me 10 big skimmers, and 2 big perch,and thanks to Dave for getting me some worm 👍👍No fishing for me now until a week Monday, work,work,work 😭😭 0384B5B8-1FEB-4938-96FB-E9CF32219A1A.jpeg EC48CF6B-CF61-42D9-A42A-8F884FEB7B4A.jpeg F5E0E381-309E-4594-96AD-9A2E88B7E5C5.jpeg

Sometimes things just don't go your way no matter how hard you try. You did the best you could and if anyone says otherwise just tell them you were distracted by Miss Pickering chatting you up all match 😉

Cheers mick, as you know I don’t go into massive detail, about every aspect of how I fished, gets too tedious, I’m always happy to share any info via message though

Just wish I could have come down and cheered you on. Did Mr Arthur get his posh cakes or is that for another time ? 😁👍

Yeah I sorted him out some nice food on Monday 👍👍
Ya not a bad lad are ya pal 👍.

I’ll most probably see Emma later this week. Any messages ? Have I to ask her if she would like a coaching session with you Gazza ? 😂😂. She’s a damn good angler but, even good anglers can’t catch what’s not in front of them. I bet she was struggling in that strong wind wasn’t she ? Or could you not see her from your peg ?

Good to finally meet you Gary, no good beating yourself up, it was a decent result from that peg on the day. :upthumb:

The weights went with the wind on Pines. I felt sorry for the lad on peg 25, he had a 3lb carp first put in and never had another bite all match. :(

I made an error of judgment coming off the skimmers, to try for carp shallow, as I could see them catching up to my left, but I couldn’t catch shallow,and I only had 2 and lost 1, as the carp were further up the lake 🤷‍♂️, still hindsight is wonderful 😂😂
