Chris decided the other day that it was about time he visited Windmill Fishery in order to defeat his gremlins.(He's always struggled there!) Lordy had been to Ivy House the day before and had some expanders to use up so he went along as well. This was a good idea really as he had qualified last week for the semi finals of the South Gloucestershire show and therefore a practice session seemed on the cards.

Chris drew peg 22 and Lordy drew peg 23 making it a neighbourly affair. Chris decided not to use his lead rod but stuck to the pole at 16m to get as close to the island as he could. In the meantime Lordy put an 8mm pellet on the straight lead in amongst the ducks (who consumed at least half of his pellet feed during the day) ands was rewarded with three carp fairly promptly. Over the course of the match he varied it between the straight lead and the pole at 8m using the leftover 6mm expanders to finish with 50lb 7oz and first place.(No longer the bridesmaid!)

Chris varied it between 16m and 4m but it took him until the last hour or so to start bringing in the carp. He finished with 19lb 6oz.
