MFS - Rookery Waters, Pidley, 19th July 2014

I've been here before.. oh yeah, last year, same peg! A MFS match at Rookery Waters in Pidley that is turning into an annual event. This is the second year we have descended on the little village of Pidley. I got to the Mad Cat Pub for our breakfast around 7:30am to be greeted by a few of the lads, most who had traveled up the day before and camped in Neilio's back garden or sourced a local hotel.  I obviously missed a good night as there were a few bleary eyes and croaky voices... A quick breakfast in the pub and the short drive to the fishery.  Rookery Waters is going through an expansion with a new lake being dug and a tackle shop being built on-site.  Access to Magpie lake has been improved with a road available to drop off your gear. The Draw Orderly queue and hands in to the plastic bag with the milk carton tops for our pegs...
