Stippevent 2018 

 Update 02.11.2018 

Fortune smiled on me and I managed to win the Stippevent 2018 with 3,700 grams (8 lb 3 oz) of Rudd, Roach and Perch. 

I used two rigs, a Preston Innovations 4x16 Chianti with strung out No. 11 Stotz, 0.08mm Reflo Power bottom to a size 18 B611 hook, and a Preston Innovations 1g Inter Carbon, with a bulk and 2 x No. 9 droppers, 0.08 mm Reflo Power bottom and size 16 B512 hook. Main line on both was 0.11 mm Reflo Power.

Best bait was a worm head fished about 10 cm off bottom - to keep the Gobies at bay. The Chianti was fished on the drop (last 1 m of water), even in the cold water. No. 5 Slip elastic through 1 section (1.25m) for the Chianti rig, and No. 6 Slip elastic through 1 section for the Inter Carbon rig.

Groundbait was Zammataro Canal Black / Roach and Skimmers Natur cloud mixed 50/50. Loose fed a few Casters and plenty of Hemp over the top at 11.5 m in 3.6 m of water. Medium bait dropper with chopped worm and casters every hour. 

It was a cold day, and concentration was required. The after-match on the bank BBQ was just perfect.

It was a great event and I'm already looking forward to organising the 2019 Stippevent.

Please direct all enquiries to Roger, as I am very busy with work until the end of the year. Thanks. 

I will be fishing the match and doing the draw and pools in the Cafe - and eating the after match food!
