Thanks everyone, it was a great experience to fish with, against and alongside some of the best and you dont appreciate how good these lads and lasses are until you see them in action.
The lad who was alongside me was casting up against a duck slide on the island, under an overhanging tree, at a range of 50m or so and dropping his feeder in an area the size of a large dinner plate most of the time.
Now bearing in mind we had a strong blustering cross wind that wouldnt have been amiss on the North Sea, it was something to watch.

Another angler had 53lb of small Perch, most no more than a couple of ounces apiece, again some brilliant skills.

I'm staying back today and fishing the Oak Lake on the opposite side to yesterday for a bit of pleasure dangling, no pressure, no rush, just a bit of fun

Report to follow later :)

Well done all and many thanks to all those who made it possible, our supporters and www.bobcotackle.co.uk

Well I've just got back home to find that one of our cats has injured it's leg, so I'm off with her down the vets in a little bit.
On my return I'll get some pictures from the day downloaded and up on here and hopefully get a bit of a report sorted sometime Sunday. ;)

She's lightened my wallet by £75 but that might not be the end of it. Will know more in a few days. :(

6mm Bandem washed out wafter
They seemed to work better than pellet on the method

I fished peg 1 on Oak today, Simon Fry's peg on the JJL match, and got 11 Carp for aprox 73lb on the same tactics, but hard up against a duck slide,

Heres a beautiful Common 10lb 10oz...
