17 anglers took part in the third round of the league and as the snow fell the whistle went to start the competition. I was straight on to mid glass and a white Fario snake on the tail with a Fnf chewing gum worm on the top dropper. Within seconds of
beginning the retrieve all went solid and i was playing the first fish of the day which shook the hook on the way to the net.
It wasnt a good start and it did not get any better, i hooked 12 fish during the first session and only landed one.
I tried playing them lighly and i tried bullying them, changed flies, nothing seemed worked.
Anglers were catching all around me and at the end of the first session i was well behind.
For the second and third peg i was on the bottom lake,
this time on the washing line with diawls and a cat booby . First cast all went solid and then the fish was off, three casts later the same thing happened. What did i do in my past life to deserve this.
Nothing more on the washing line, so i changed
to lures. A few cast and again i was into a fish and that duely came off a few seconds later. A slight breeze developed and i quickly changed to the diawls, i feel the washing line works better in a breeze as the line is more taught as it swings with the breeze
and you get better hook ups. Sure enough i got one on a diawl bach and lost another on the booby.
My third peg was a disaster as it went calm again, 2 indications on the bung and a lost fish on the lure. So it was back to the top lake for peg four.
