Fishing with just the top two of your pole can be a hairy event, especially when the carp decide to turn up, but this is exactly what 20 intrepid anglers, with another 20 anglers on another day, did on a cloudy and windy day.
|Pegs 31 to 40 on Tile Lake. The upper numbers are favoured when it comes to bagging up on the carp.|
Chris drew peg 33 which is not a renowned carp peg so he decided to fish for silvers, hoping maybe that the carp would come to his constant feeding of the caster. Chris fished shallow using the same rig as the one he used at Ivy House and by the end of the day had amassed a total of 23lb to win the silvers pool.

Lordy was placed in peg 36, next door to John Wintle, a customer of Fish & Field, and the usual £1 wager was put into place!
|No matter how he tried, John could not find enough fish in his net. He lost his £1|

The next round is on 14th June - just before Evesham which is Chris' favourite venue. Watch this space!
