Manor 12 Feb 2017
Drawn 18 ash today not happy as this and 20 on ash both had the wind in the face everyone else had wind on there backs and boy was it cold the other pools were island and middle
But ash 18 and 20 are fliers normally in good weather mostly pole on ash but shallow and pellet wag in summer so set up 2 rigs both the new pb inter wire stems 4x16 one short for groundbait and maggot as a lot of skimmers in ash the other 13 mtrs for 4 MM expander feeding a few 2 MM expanders with micros fed the short line with a ball of black marukyu sweet fishmeal laced with flouro pinkies the long line with some micros and 2mm expander started on short line with double red maggot after 20 mins had first bite which I think was a foul hooked f1 which I lost then no more bites went on 13 mtr line which resulted in 5 big f1s in 5 put ins thought I was going to empty it then the skimmers moved in but was a bite a chuck on the 4 MM expander but they were 4 to the pound every now and then would catch a decent f1 but was no pattern to it and this was how the rest of the match panned out ended with 15 f1s and a load of skimmers for 45lb 8ozs and  joint 2nd in match and boy was it cold was struggling to put bait on as my fingers were numb but enjoyed it as I didn't expect to catch what I did in those conditions but that's fishing that's why we do it
