Partridge Lakes, Sunday Open, Covey 1-4 &6 7/6/20

Today was always going to be difficult. Due to a bit of a family emergency on Saturday late evening I didn’t get home until 05:20 on Sunday morning from Whiston Hospital A&E. I wasn’t really up for this and almost never attended in favour of some sleep. Anyway, rocked up at 09:00 as per the fishery Covid-19 instructions, only to find that most everyone had rocked up early and there was no parking spaces on the Covey road. Thankfully I had been drawn Peg 40 Covey 2 so not to much of a walk from the main car park. Started to rain as soon as I started to set up, thankfully it stopped just 5 minutes before the hooter for All In sounded. I had an aerator and cables to my right so pretty much had no margin or mud line on that side. Set 3 tracks:
1. 7m out front, 8-10 elastic, 0.16 mainline, 0.11 hook length to Preston SWL #16 hook. GORTINI 4×10 Dibber. Shallow Maggot
7m out front, 8-10 elastic, 0.16 mainline, 0.11 hook length to Preston SWL #14 hook. GORTINI Johny paste.
2. 13.5m right margin, 8-10 elastic, 0.16 mainline to 0.13 hook length to Preston SWL #16 hook. GORTINI Mini Margin. Burt Baits Hook and Hair 6mm sweet F1 expander.
3. 12m mud line, 10-12 elastic, 0.16 mainline to 0.13 hook length to Preston SWL #16 hook. GORTINI Mini Margin. Maggot Burt Baits Hook and Hair 4 and 6mm sweet F1 expander.
Forgot my sweet corn, hemp, bread and meat! Still in the fridge.
Had a single F1 and 5 common with a couple of roach for 14lb 9oz. All the carp were caught on my right margin track. A bad days fishing with the consolation that the peg to my right tipped back with 8 small F1 for even less than I had. Peg to my left was pulling them out 1 a chuck almost for 80 odd lb and a section win. Seems none of the path pegs did any serious weights just the end Pegs, and that is the end of my excuses.
