First NAC Coarse match of the year, fished at a new venue for many, Park Farm Fisheries in Hockering.
Start was at 8:30am, and the idea was to fish till noon, then have a break and weigh what had been caught , then continue on at 1pm till 4:30pm, the fish had other ideas with only Barry Iseton and Jimmy Shaul finding fish in the fisrt half , so it was decided to continue straight through till 5pm and then do a complete weigh in. The fishing all day wasnt excellent with very l…ittle action below but plenty on the surface, but with surface fishing not allowed many alternated between waggler and feeder.
Neil Haynes was now also in the running with a carp at 6lb 9oz which was enough to give him second place podium spot. 3rd place went to Jimmy Shaul with 5lb 3oz, 4th place to Eamon Finch with 4lb 6oz and 5th place to Barry Iseton with 2lb 13oz, but top spot today went to Dene Conway with a nice carp on his second last cast in the right hand margin, for 11lb 2oz.
All in all a frustrating day with several left scratching their heads and wondering why the fish were not feeding, but none the less enjoyable and good company on a warm June day.
