Tuesday 20th May saw 15 members of RADDAA turn out for the latest match of the year.

This match was at Misterton Hall and it makes a very pleasant change to fish here in such pleasant surroundings with the Main Hall as a back drop rather than the normal bomb site that greats you at a lot of fisheries these days.

The View from the car park over the lake

As can be seen in the above picture with mown lawns and topiary created shrubs surrounding the lake it is a pleasure to just be at such a venue.

Well onto the fishing

Brian & Rob had pegged 4 swims on the near bank at the top end (furthest from the car park) and 11 on the House bank to try and facilitate for easier fishing as the wind and rain was blowing at a slight angle from the house bank toward the car park.

With a tarmac roadway going from the car park to the house bank it makes life easier to get everyone to their pegs unless your name is Malc, well some pegs are midway from car access.[;)]

Once everyone was at their pegs i trudged off to find my peg (which Brian had drawn for me)[:D] and the picture below is the view i had looking behind me.


Mid way along the House bank and at the base of the main lawn.

Next peg on my right was Rob who has won the last 2 matches and fishes here regularly so at least I thought Id see a few fish caught, and I did but not by Rob.[;)][:D][;)]

The stock is mainly Tench, Roach, F1 Carp and Cruicans with the odd Ornamental Goldfish to add a bit colour.
