Yours truly is up and at it very early this morning to get things ready for this afternoons “”funfishin match”….more about that in a bit.
A fairly busy one yesterday with a nice mixture of people from England, Russia, USA and Holland, all catching well with several species showing. Gary was back for the second time, determined to squeeze one more session in before heading back to Blighty and he was rewarded with lots of Siamese carp for his efforts plus a good few other fish, safe travels mate, been a pleasure.
Tom and Catherine Tero were back for the afternoon and this time Tom took a more traditional European carp fishing approach using boilies, a good few fish for him from the disabled swim with lots of Red Tails late in the day……I wonder if this was a little practice session for this afternoons fish off…….????…..
We currently have 16 competitors for this afternoons match and assuming that they all turn up we will split them into 2 teams but that does not take away the individual element with little prizes for biggest fish, most fish, most points etc meaning they are fishing for a team and in a way against their team mates, just a little fun with “THE SALTY SEA DOG TROPHY” up for grabs which is in memory of last years joint winner and good friend Paul Whittall, gone way to early, not forgotten and missed by many. The lake will be closed for fishing to other anglers for the afternoon and when the whistle blows at 6pm the results will be announced and then some food laid on and no doubt a few “cold ones” into the night and everyone is welcome to help us celebrate our 6th birthday, just a bit of silliness and some……………”FUNFISHIN!”………
