Over 60 and Disabled Match, White Door Dam, 19/9/19.

My second week attending the “Old and Bold” match scene due to being off work for a few weeks holidays. Drew Peg 28, first peg on the back bank Beech Pool. Never fished this peg but was told it was OK with plenty of Carp to feet and down the dam between Beech and Oak. Not so for me today though, fishing was good and productive but no Carp or skimmers/bream. For 79 all roach 4lb 14oz. Wasn’t last but nowhere in the frame, with 20lb odd of Carp and silvers taking first place. It was a learning experience on a complex I don’t fish that often and a peg I had never fished. Good silvers practice for the Havannah Flash Match on Sunday 😀 .
