Went to Old Oak Farm Fishery today for the open match, not matchfished here before, although pleasure fished it a few times…George has drawn me peg 1, and the top guy there Jeff Robertshaw , and legend Keith Haynes,AKA @shallowman have put me right👍. It’s fished really hard , and everyone was struggling, so I just carried on trying to put fish in the net…I’ve ended up with 32-10-0, which was good enough for 2nd place 🥈💰, also winning the biggest fish prize with an 11-8-0 common …Jeff Robertshaw has won the match with 33-12-0😂- just pipping me 😂so well done to him👍, really enjoyed it and a real nice bunch of guys, and George and his wife are really hospitable 👍👍👍👍Once again the So-simple Kriller groundbait and rocks have done the business 👍👍. 1F0CF37F-162C-47CF-A5E4-8B5CADD7C897.jpeg B1366DE3-EF5D-4BB8-B660-8287B7B6A2B8.jpeg

Well done mate, top angling as always and great to hear that the legend Keith Haynes is still in action!

Just to have a tackle tart moment, what make is your pole roost... looks like a modern day version of the old Milo Rocket Launcher?
