Report:

Only 3 anglers turned out to fish on a wet, cold miserable day. It was a hard decision where to peg it as we were coming of a milder spell. Would the fish be in the deep water like last week or would they be shallower. At the end of the day a compromise was made with half and half. Dougie desperate to draw well drew first and got the only non end peg which fished well last week. Taff then drew the shallow end peg leaving Tommy the deep end peg which won last week. Match was fished from 10-15am till 3-15pm.

The rain was pouring during the set up time and continued most of the day so heavy that it was hard to identify any areas of feeding fish, It was a very slow start to the match and Tommy came in to to his nearside 3 foot line to catch a small perch just prior to Midday to take the lead. Around 12-30pm Tommy fishing 2 foot deep across the far shelf caught a carp around 1.5Lbs. Dougie at that point lost a carp on his feeder rod. Tommy followed up with a 12oz skimmer.

Around 1-30pm Tommy repeated his previous two fish again in the same order. It was around that time that Dougie began catching Skimmers on his rod after having had a few roach on the pole. Dougie then lost a bream at the net to continue his bad run.

Tommy then caught a Bream around the 1.5Lb mark. Dougie caught a total of 4 skimmers plus a good sized Hybrid to weigh 2Lbs-11ozs. Tommy in the last 5 mins caught a Hybrid around 0.75Lbs and weighed 7Lbs-7ozs. Poor Taff who gets up at 4-30am and travels for 3 hours to make the match had no fish to weigh, a very hard day at the office for him and a long 3 hour journey home.

During the last 2 hours you could feel the temps getting real cold as the cold weather arrives for the next few days. Match on Sunday is on the Main Loch once more.
