MFS - Stafford Moor - Silvers Festival, 28th February 2013
The final day of the Silvers festival and an open draw, so I could be on any of the three lakes that we had fished in the previous three days. I drew Tanners, Peg 9 so on the lawns again just a few pegs up from where I started on Monday. My neighbours for the day would be Mark Mcdorch and none other than my adopted dad, Herbie, our festival organiser.
After breaking the ice to about 13 metres, I set up the following lines:
13 metres straight ahead
8 metres at 2 o’clock
I decided to fish one 13 metre line positively and the other as I’d being doing the last two days, with a nugget of sloppy groundbait fed via the kinder cup. I cupped in one large ball of groundbait with casters and dead reds on the 45 degree line and a small cup of chopped worm in the 8 metre line.
|Small amounts of feed throughout the day was required|
3lb 10oz, 3oz short of a section second!
First time I’ve had to break the ice in a match, the section weights were low and the fishing was tough. I was pleased with the efforts, I was getting bites throughout albeit after a short wait. Mark Murdoch had won the section a few days earlier and I fished it exactly how he fished it, shame the big perch never showed.
