Winter League R5

Winter League Round 5,  Sunday 15th December:

This is how a fur and feather should be, unfortunately it was not as close as it could have been as Mark Gratton un-sportingly bagged a couple of skimmers late on for the win, otherwise it would have been a close call with everyone scratching.  There were a lot of size 22 hooks, pinkies, 1 mill bread punch and squats being thrown at the redfins and gonks and whilst the fish were numerous for some, they were not what you would call a ‘decent’ stamp.  Adrian Hill came out on top of the ‘eyes’ bashing, just one ounce ahead of Rob Fowler in third.  The result does put ‘Sailor’ top of the league with a 4 point lead.   Kevin Hill recorded the lowest weight with 1/8oz!

It was good to see so many turn out in what were bracing conditions, a big thank you to the Brendon Arms for looking after us for the post match meal and to the Team at Waterfront Shooting and Fishing who provided a welcome cup of soup half way through.
