2 - 2 draw now

I popped down to woodlands again for a night, and got one of the nicesr carp i have even seen



Went 20lb on the scales so take off 2lb for the weigh sling 18lb of the nicest carp your ever see.
Been using a new bait witch iam 100 % faith in now and more then happy going forward that it will bring me more fish of this standard . I was using dark side rig as well its the nuts hooks them so well.

The big carp in woodlands 3 scale was caught from peg 1 at 33.5lb so well done to that carper !! maybe one day may be a 40lb swimming around in there.

Need to spend a bit of time at home now and doing stuff round the house and just some short sessions 4 hours etc

2- 1 to the carp

Hi all

Had a night the other night at woodlands and didnt get a thing my mate in peg 1 had 2 nice carp 22 mirror and 12 lb common  , maybe one pick up or just a line bite but didnt hit it
was trying out the zig rig for the frist time with the carp swimming around 1 feet under the water most the day and night though it would have gone but nothing , think i messed up chancing them around the swim , instead of watching them more to see where the were swimming was in a new swim peg 3 , but been told about a few hot spots in that swim where a mate had 17 fish in a weekend on this just one spot !!! ..... marker rod time next time in there i feel .

So i have now done 2 short nights and a 24 hour session iam back down there to night with a new bait as well :o) the rev baits where not working out for me down there , not saying there a bad bait but i know boys catching well on other bait in there so be silly not to try it out and see for my self ... end of the day its up to me who and what i use this is why i dont ever want to have a fishing sponsor as spent years in triathlon keeping people happy and not able to use other bits of kit etc , and my carping is my hobbie and thats it :O)

lake windermere 10.5 mile swim race non-wetsuit

Lake Windermere


To swim the length of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake, is a mighty challenge. More people have climbed Mount Everest than have ever made this swim ! It is 10.5 miles, or 16.8 kilometres, of fresh, cold water averaging between 14 and 17 degrees centigrade. The record is around 3 hours and 40 minutes, but most of us mortals will take between 5 and 9 hours to complete the distance.



Those entering this event are accepting a huge personal challenge. so i think once i have chatted to my g.f about this 2015 i will entre for this event

10km jubilee river swim report

This will be up dated once get some photos done and results

I drove down on the monday night after I borrowed my father-in-laws van, by doing this can put a matures in the back and get a great nights sleep, this is something I will be doing with my triathlons as well, ( saves tons of money instead of hotels etc ) and means I was a reg first thing this morning, the drive to eton was a nice one roads quite as it was the queens jubilee.

Once got there parked up and found a nice pub for some food then off to bed with a movie on the iPhone.

Woke up at 8am for coffee and breakfast, The race it self was thought out great the bus picked us up from HQ and then it was a 20min drive to the start. I was starting to think what have I let myself into the fact that it's a 20min drive to the start, still once there all got our wetsuits on think there was around 100 athletes doing the full 10km and then loads doing the team event.

I thought from the start nice and easy and just get though this as going to be a long day, I found that I was swimming with the same people for the whole 10km ( one being Russ Cox ) and it was nice to get out the water to get to the add station and more to the next stage ( as it was weres etc safety areas ).

I think the areas were 1.9km 3.6km 2.6km 1.5km Each one had cake and food and drinks but I was using QNT , cliff gells and Pepsi as all ways have found them to work very well.

I did feel in the 1.5km that I had run out of strength in my arms and my kick was week for the whole 10km swim, also my left hand pool is weaker these are some thing I can now work on, Overall very happy with the whole trip up there the event and can now say I am a marathon swimmer :) More to follow on report once get times and photos etc So what's next 6weeks sprint triathlon And 1km river Medway olypmic race Bring back the speed work

But for now job done :o)
