The Basildon bomb shell Paul Hyde back on top the week, just how he likes it…

The weather people predicted bright sunshine but instead it persisted down with rain all morning and that cold water was just enough to stop the fish from spawning, just before the whistle the carp were having a go and a margin ban was enforced so it was 1m from any margin or margin feature but as soon as the rain fell the fish stopped having fun, but even so it has fished better than we all expected considering the weather and the margin ban, Basildon Bond wasn’t shaken or stirred by the enforcement and fished an honest line down the track and bagged up on the pellet, carp mainly with an assortment of silver fish , he did apparently have a quiet spell but he was a bit unsure when that was ha ha ha. I won’t tell you what we called him but you can guess, lol…
