Warm Sun all throughout the match might have reasonable led you to believe the carp on the Damsel pool would be moving up in the water. However despite almost being June, the prolonged cold start, to the year has meant that the water has hardly warmed up yet. Derek Taylor fed pellet little and often in an attempt to draw the fish to the top. Although the tactic did not work as intended. it pulled enough fish into the swim to enable him to put over 56lb in the net (or should i say “Nets”). This was enough to take 1st place with Don Johnson and Phil Lankester picking up 2nd and 3rd place.
It being such a warm and pleasant day, the Environment Agency even turned up. Fortunately everyone had remembered to bring their rod license.
