Arriving at Sivyers Lake we were greated with lovely sunshine and a great looking lake. The draw would be a "walk off" draw. Basically, you are drawn a number, this number relates to begin able to walk off and select the pegs of your choice.
Brian had explained the lake and where the hotspots would be and also the methods, covered later. I was 7th to "walk off" and selected peg 13. Luckily Mark who was also fishing with us managed to get peg 12 next to me.
We would be fishing 10:30am until 4pm, which gave us about an hour to tackle up.
Brain had told us that it would be pellet waggler and bomb and/or method feeder and as the lake had been crossed with ropes and floats to prevent cormorant predation to target the floats on the rope as these acted as fish attracting devices.
- Method Feeder, 10' Bomb Rod, 6lb Mainline
- Drennan Puddle Chucker, 11'6" Float Road, 4lb Mainline
- 13 metre Pole line directly in front and to the float on my right
- Top 3 Pole line to bush on left and right
