Todays venue was at Whittington, near Litchfield.
14 fished and as I got totally lost, (despite having fished it before!)and after a late start due to misplacing my car keys! I arrived at my peg at 9.00, with a start time of 9.30!

With peg 5 and 14 available to me, I chose 14 for (not the prevailing wind direction and not after assessing the features, or reading up the potential!) but for the most scientifically provable theory in the Zippy matchmans creed.

It was nearest and I hate carrying kit!


Raining on arrival, it quickly cleared up and only 1 small shower followed throughout the match.
Heres the lake

I fed the laft margin swim, (where there was a cut back in the bank, with loose offerings of sweetcorn, American buckwheat,and luncho, cubed and raspberry flavoured and the rght hand margin swim with 6 balls of groundbait, 1/3rd each brown crumb/fish meal/sillybait, laced with B'Wheat,corn,dead whites,meat as before.
Out front, I intended to put out a feeder due to late start, when I got round to it!
I never did!

Fished waggler, 3' deep, meat/worm/corn over LH swim, on and off for about 1/2 hour, never a bite!
Rest of time, fished double red maggot on size 17 711 hook,tied straight on to 4lb line!
Never once varied or changed hook, caught on bottom, top(smaller stamp) and middle! ended with about 45 skimmers for 4lb 7oz , section win and 3rd overall!
Phil L 2nd , 5lb 13oz, same as me, but 1 roach!
Barry Volley won, the only carp caught(3), 1 tench and skimmers for 10lb +
I have read that Carp follow the wind and it is best to chose to fish into it!
Well these 3 lads were not part of the match, but fishing with the wind coming from directly behind them and they caught carp all day!
PS, another good reason for choosing my swim!
I can see the Car Park and my car from here!
