Good skills Rob , shame Villa couldn't match it 😂 Can't believe you watched me for two hours tan your ass and then have the cheek to change it around and beat me😜 Must be Karma for your long drive from the comedy accent side of the midlands. Hope that trophy's in pride of place.

Villa are useless, as soon as I heard they'd equalized I knew they'd lose :ROFLMAO: I honestly thought you had slaughtered the match lol.

Maggotdrowners Midlands Individual Match – Jansons – Aubreys Lake – 22/09/2019

Another match of new faces, reacquaintances, friendly banter, plenty of bites and the associated poor weather!

Aubreys was the lake this year at the prolific Jansons which offered the chance of mixed fishing as it is heavily stocked with silvers as well as stocky carp. Bites were plentiful, but an early pattern began to show with the end pegs on both sides of the lake catching well, as well as reigning champ Gixer.

A variety of methods were working initially, hard across, down the shelf, shallow etc. but as the weather worsened the margins came into play for the last couple of hours. Predictions were that either Morgz or 90sgear had it although having sat next to Gixer again like last year I knew he would be close. (he still maintains he is a canal angler at heart!) Neil on my left hand side had also caught well down the margin from early on and I knew had more than the 40lb he was admitting to.

Personally – I never really got going. My last 3 matches had gone Canal, River, Commercial and until the end of the first hour with Gixer on the next peg a good 10lb in front I finally started to catch consistently shallow. Ive tried to make tight across work for far too long with pellets and eventually lined up a mixed bag down the margin, but was a long way behind some by then. Highlight for me anyway was having Jos, my son, who is 6 fishing a match for the first time with the help of grandad. He sat it out for the full 5 hours and weighed 22lb of all sorts. He loved it and is already booked on the next one.

In terms of the result the cream rose to the top and the usual suspects took the top slots with Rob taking the crown. A long journey made worth while – well done!

1st Rob6709 – 97.03

2nd – gixer13 – 93.00

3rd – Morgz – 91.03

Section A – Hicko1 – 82.06

Section B – Dirk – 77.15

In terms of the spoon – well it finds it hard to leave it’s original owner and I think he has the same affection for it too! Scribe look after it until the next time!

Thanks to everyone who fished, who helped weigh in on the day and for Fish4alarf for running the raffle and raising over £100 for Charity. After a number of years in the East Midlands it’s the turn of the West Midlands division to host – look forward to seeing where we fish.

I have Jansons booked for next year but will probably run a mystery pairs match instead!
