Rolfs Lake nr Wheatley Oxon
18/08/02


Rolf had a club match booked in the afternoon so hastily arranged for a open in the morning.

This does not normally fish that well as the carp tend to feed better as the day goes on.

It is normally catmeat or pellet that get the big weights but over recent weeks paste has been getting in the frame.For some reason foul hooking and pulling out of fish is occurring fishing the catmeat as i found out today.

I started off with a .75g float with catmeat on the hook and had to wait for 5mins before a bite.Kev Coke in the next peg had already hooked and lost 2 by then.When it did go under it was foul hooked and tore off until the elastic bottomed out and the rig came flying back.
A few adjustments were made and i started to connect with a few fish,only small carp about 2lb each but was still pulling out of foul hooked fish.Kev was suffering the same but a change to paste meant he was catching more than losing.I suffered all day long no matter what i tried.

Gary Thorpe won the match with 289lb and second had 196lb.Kev finished 5th with 105lb and lost a fish putting it in his keepnet which would have given him 4th.Me i caught 38lb and was well and truly battered.

Keith,

I would be keen to give this venue a try, but

Only when my leg is recovered - and

When Red and Malc are at home.

Sorry Malc please keep your curse on Bagging waters limited to the ones already effected - no new ones please.

Poles

Great info, great guys, great fun, thats Maggot Drowners

Keith, sounded a really frustrating day but Kev, 105lbs for 5th.... bloody hell. No wonder you guys were so impressed with mudmore!!!

Maybe we should ALL have a day out and perhaps a little comp at Rolfs? just a thought

But im up for it and maybe if we leave Malc in the car with Red the fishing wont be too bad?

To All,

This is not to put anyone off but Rolf only allows matches on his lake.These have to be booked in advance and would need to be able to pay for the whole lake 40pegs.Although the club match that followed us only had about 20 people fishing.It is POLE ONLY at this time of year and he has rules about most things.He will supervise weigh ins as he is there all day.Best bet is to book into one of his opens and take it from there.The coke lads are there most weeks but Kev has got it sorted from most pegs.

Keith.

Just to bring this topic up again i would love there to be a maggot drowners match at rolfs lake but speaking to rolf in the last few weeks he said he is going to knock the private and club bookings on the head now as he said that they are more grief than they are worth but i am there this saturday and i will ask rolf if it would be ok for maggotdrowners to have one as a favour failing that the only other way of doing it is to all book into an open and fish that way the open dates coming up are

Scott, bring 1/2 pint of squats if you want. Anything you catch has to go back. Carp are the only fish that you can weigh until 1st November!!!
