Good Sport On Tirelles Lake

Greg Sire had a productive match on greg-sire-eure-loirTirelles Lake at Cloyes sur le Loir, catching an estimated 300 fish for a section win and 2nd overall.

The contest was split into two 2.5 hour heats with a lunchtime break in between. Greg’s catch weighed 9.55kg and consisted of roach, perch and two skimmer bream.

All the fish were caught on the pole at six and 12 metres. On a windy day Greg found a 2g float was best to present his hook bait over a bed of groundbait and heavy soil containing joker and worms. His size 16 hook was baited with either single maggot or a maggot and bloodworm cocktail.
