It got serious! The carp match is postponed, we need a full day and me and James are having trouble lining one up when we’re both free. So back to the gudgeon pond for round two - 2 hours, most gudgeon wins a pint. And this time it was properly competitive!
We’d both refined our rigs, James going lighter, me using a big float so they’d hook themselves - and both changed our feeding pattern to bring the fish up in the water and increase competition. With the fish going nuts it was just a case of efficiency.
Brian 111 - 73 James
Very nearly 200 gudgeon between us in two hours. And I was close to hitting the magic mark of a fish a minute, a cracking couple of hours - and pint two also tasted goood! We have a few more little matches lined up - I’m sure he’s not going to let me continue my run!
