Help­ful match­men

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

I RE­CENTLY took the plunge and fished my first-ever open match af­ter spend­ing months won­der­ing about whether I should get in­volved in the scene.

The event was at Par­tridge Lakes and af­ter five hours of fish­ing I had re­ally en­joyed my­self although, as you’ve prob­a­bly al­ready guessed, I won noth­ing at all!

What amazed me was how help­ful the reg­u­lars were. I feared that top an­glers would be dis­mis­sive of new­com­ers like me, but they helped me out and an­swered any ques­tions I had on the best tactics in a de­tailed and hon­est way.

I’ll def­i­nitely be head­ing back for another match soon, hop­ing that the tips I picked up can help me put in a bet­ter per­for­mance. Michael Hunter, Ch­ester
