6th John Darby Sherwood Forest Fishery peg 10 Cavendish, 11-11-0



Gale force winds made it near impossible to present a bait on the Maunside and it was still hard on the usually sheltered Cavendish Lake. In first place Phil struggled to fish the pole and maggot down the inside margin for chub and small carp but in the last hour the wind died down enough for him to fish the far bank he had a chub – 1lb nearly every put out. Best on the Cavendish and 2nd overall is league leader Mick Langton he was last on the lake with 90 minutes to go but a change to pole and corn fished down the margin he had 4 carp – 6lb and 10lb of skimmers on pole and pellet fished out for a total of 27lb 12oz just enough to edge Neil into 2nd on the lake and third overall.
