MFS - Stafford Moor - Silvers Festival, 27th February 2013
I decided to set-up a feeder rod in case the pole didn’t produce and I could explore the bay area. I opted for two main lines at the normal 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock postions. Plumbing up to find two area’s of the same depth so I could utilise a single rig, set up another rig as a back up. The lines were at 13 metres giving me an option to go past to 14.5 metres if necessary.
Following the previous day’s advice from Steve May I decided to follow the same pattern of feeding a small nugget of sloppy groundbait laced with a few casters and dead red maggot each put in on both lines taking a fish from each alternative swim.
|These don't count ;-(|
Plenty of fish, but small and they weighted 6lb 3oz for 4th in section.
The previous days weights were less than I had, so I was pleased with my efforts. Alan on the peg next to me had potted in rather than fed sparingly and he weight 3lb so I feel the approach was correct.
No “Battered by BNF” t-shirts were awarded today. Rob
A Colin special, Spag Bol with plenty for second helpings. Dave (Shedful) had been out and bought some Jaffa Cakes and Chocolate fingers which didn’t last very long at all!
