I have not fished many matches this year hence the lack of activity on this Blog.
I did fish a match on the Gloucester Canal back in early January but I basically went, drew peg 31, sat in the rain for 5 hours and caught very very little as you do on that peg. the 40's dominated as usual.
I also fished a Clevedon Club match on the River Kenn recently, drew the wrong area and blanked as did 9 others around me.
I have however had my best winter on the River Kenn. It's not comfortable fishing as you need to stand in the mud due to the level being dropped to half its depth (average 3 to 4 foot in winter, Dec - March).
I have adapted a few bits of tackle of make it more comfortable especially my waterproof side tray with broom handles!
