I fished the very prestigious 33 teams of 5 Sensas challenge two day event on the Gloucester canal with my team Matrix and the day before we all felt that we had a good practice and had a few things sorted for the two day event.
On the first day we had a mixed bag of results consisting of a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th and 10th for a total of 28 points and 12th overall. Day 2 we had a mixed bag of results again consisting of a 2nd, 4th, 7th, 9th, 11th and this gave us a total of 33 points and overall we scored 61 point to end up 15th.
On day 1 and day 2 I have been 4th in section which is consistent results without catching any Bream, on both days I have caught a mixture of small skimmers and roach. I have fished a 5-6 metre line with small amounts of joker and a 13 metre line with 60% leam and 40% Hinders Supercharged Extra Fine Canal Groundbait and Betalin with 200g of joker plus a few dead pinkies. It has been a very enjoyable weekend fishing against the best teams around. I also had 3 days of fishing with my new Matrix mtx 4 which I can say is a brilliant pole.

This groundbait smells great - add water and it turns to porridge but once its riddled it is so light there is very little for the fish to fill up on but the smell draws the fish in and creates a power packed cloud of tiny particles.
