ANDREW'S STORY OF THE MATCH.
Redhill Fishery today for the Sirhowy match on Penny’s. Drew a good un in the shape of peg 33. Plan was to
fish short nick a few f1s while priming shallow line for f1s then try and
extract as much as possible last hour and half down the edge. Well to say it
started slow for me was an understatement probably had 4 f1s in the first hour
short on pellets just couldn’t put anything together so went out 13mtr with
pellets and started to put a few f1 together over next few hours fishing 4mm pellets best depth out there was 15”
today wind was a nightmare. Atr the 2 hour mark primed the edge and saw signs
immediately so gone down and put 130lb of carp together last hour and half,
corn was best over pellets. Managed a total of 195lb odd to take 1st place, been some cracking back up weights too,
