Today was the was the 1st round of the AA teams of 3 Silver Fish Lge Fished at Astwood Fishery. Little Jimmy was there but was not on top form today, think due to the effort/Stardom of yesterdays outing at Barford. But 1st on the Day was Mine and Little Jimmy's Best Mate Paul Fenemore on peg 56 with a Skimmers and Bream + Perch catch of 9lb+ ...well Done My Mate.2nd off peg 60 was Paul Butler with 7lb 2oz, 3rd Bob Kennedy with 6lb 15oz off peg 54.............. Myself and Little Jimmy managed 3lb 6oz 4drms for 3rd in section to be beat by Paul Ashton with 3lb 6oz 8drms and winner of the section with 3lb 6oz 12drms was Conrad Davies ...Dramed OUT .....Oooooooooooooo that Hurts.
