5 – Goodiford Mill
I had fished the main lake before but not the silvers lake and was told to expect big weights of silvers, it didn’t really turn out like that but I did manage to catch a few fish and sneak a section win.
4 – Durleigh Reservoir
This was a charity match for Wateraid and I managed a few fish but got battered off the next peg (nothing new there then!) and didn’t think I’d won an envelope but it was nice day and for a good cause.
3 – Mark’s Pond
This wasn’t strictly a ‘virgin visit’ as Andy and me had pleasure fished it and bagged up but it was my first match on the pond. Things didn’t go to plan but I still managed a good result.
2 – Viaduct
Another venue I had pleasure fished before but this was my first match as Scott lured me there with tales of big silvers weights.
1 – Coking Farm
Tackleuk were running this one and when Scotty said there was a good chance I could break the ton for the first time, I thought I’d give it a go.
