Silverfish Slip Up

I entered the Angling Trust Silverfish qualifier at Meadowlands yesterday. I Drew 27 on Warren, which is a decent peg, and ended up with 29lb of skimmers and roach to just miss out on qualifying.

Plenty of bites, but a bit on the small side compared to the better stamp that Sam Collett managed on peg 18 to win the lake with 32lb. Good luck in the final mate.

I caught at 10m and 14m with single maggot over Dynamite Silver Fish Dark and Milled Expander. Best rig was a 4×14 Malman Secret, 0.08mm bottom, 18 hook and 4-6 Slik elastic.

I wanted to film it but the weather was pants, so you also missed me slipping down the steps and landing on a nice metal post. Still bloody hurts!

I was also 6th overall, as there was a 29lb, 30lb, 32lb, 38lb and a 41lb above me. Great fishing. Only my second ever silverfish match at Meadowlands and I probably should fish it a bit more as it’s a cracking venue.
