MFS - Stafford Moor - Silvers Festival, 25th February 2013
|Dave Brittain, neighbour for the day|
The wind was off my back on Peg 6 and it was quite cold, so a pole only day. My neighbours were Dave Brittain, a fellow Teessider on Peg 5 and Mark Murdoch on Peg 13.
10 metre line at 2 o’clock
14 metre line at 2 o’clock
Top 2 keepnet line
Plenty of time to set-up as the match was 11pm until 4pm. I fed the 10 metre lines, one with a ball of groundbait including some casters and dead maggots on the left line and a small cup of chopped worm on the right hand line. As the day progress, these lines were topped up every hour in accordance with the bites tailing off.
|Mark's brace of 2lb Perch|
6lb 5oz, beaten by Dave Brittain with 10lb and Mark Murdoch (MarkM) with 16lb. Mark also had two great Perch, each just over 2lb each.
The weights in my section weren’t huge and it had been a tough day, but I had bites all day it was a shame the bigger skimmers never moved in.
Col had two Lodge of Plenty dwellers for neighbours, Dave and Paul and he battered them both, so two shirts were given out. Dave’s first shirt and Paul’s third!
