Copthorne Figure 8 .....04.11.07

Postby Shacky » Sun Nov 04, 2007 8:29 pm

Today we were at the Figure 8 (Donut) at Copthorne. There had been a cold snap the night previous. Which would have slowed things down a bit. I Got a nice parking spot right in front of our water for the day. I grabbed a few pictures of the "8".....

I then made my way to to sarnie bar. More people had turned up for this match, being the Xmas cup. I got my Bacon Butty and went and had a chat.....

Image


When we had the draw. My peg was 5. The regular anglers looked a bit dejected to be on this side of the water, we all know with hindsight.....

Image

Colin was to my right. With Paul isolated on peg 1 (Wonder Why :roll: :wink: )

Image

Eddy to the left. Brian was further down trying out his Bib.....

Image

I started off on the far shelf, There was nothing. In the end i fished everywhere i thought a fish would be.....

Image

Still nothing :( I knew it would be bad, but not this bad. I spent four and three quarter hours Fishless. Then managed a small roach in the last fifteen min's . So that was my days efforts 1.5oz :cry:
Time for me to lock my freshwater tackle up for the winter.
