I am the proud possessor of the wooden spoon which, incidentally, hardly seems fair when I weighed in 10lb, a lot more than some others but I ain't moanin honest injun! To put a positive swing on it, if I hadn't earned those extra points the real champions, the Aces wouldn't have won and Wendy would have had gloating rights for another year, hardly deserved either seeing as how we Aces are obviously more blessed in fishing knowledge.
Well done and a big thankyou to Neil for a well organised and enjoyable fish in, at the end of the day it is the enjoyment that we get out of it that makes it all worthwhile. A special thankyou from me for getting permission to drive over to the lake, I think I would have still been trying to get back to the car park if you hadn't done that, thanks mate.
'twas a damned nice fish-in on a perfect day (well except for that big black cloud that couldn't make its mind up for an hour or so and, of course, the result..... ).
Glad to pass on the wooden spoon,long may it be passed on in perpetuity ! Only sorry it had to go in Graham's direction. On weight he'd have been safe,but points systems are no respecters of persons.
Must confess, this two fish types format Carp v. Silvers does make you think a bit tactically, with thenecessity to score in both in the team interest. I may have swapped over to Carp too late in retrospect. But then again who knows...
A most enjoyable day and relaxed, great. What fishing should be all about....

Well spoken Evan....
It was a superb fish in again, great to have met up with some old friends, who went through all the trouble to travel a great distance, also to have met a few new ones, specially the big Rival Ray/forum/smilies/wink_smiley.gif great to have finally met you mate, see you at the Severn, don't forget the centre pin.
Bless Graham W for making it to the fish in even though he had big trouble to keep on his feet, hope you feeling better soon.
Sis, had been ages last time we met, was great to see you again hope you had a good journey home.
Colin and Sue, nice to have finally met you, great to have another female angler on board.
Fancy giving tutition to an angler student how to catch big roach?
Thanks for saving my life...carrying my box would have killed me.
What can I say.....a huge thank you for organising a great fish in, hope you already thought about a new date for the re-match.
