Winter League R3 2011

Monday, 5 December 2011

Sunday 4th December

Simon Allen could not believe his luck when he waited for the last peg to be left and drew peg 17 for the second week running. Once again Simon pole fished just off the ledge to find the slabs and record a hat trick of victories.  The fishing was a lot slower than in previous weeks and with high winds, heavy showers and water the colour of coffee the silverfish were definitely not in the mood for feeding.  Ady Larkins did find a few of small carp and a slab from peg 19 to bank a creditable 10lbs on the day.  A slab and two roach, all taken on quiver tipped bread flake from beg 15 was enough to see Derek Foster into third spot on the day and sneak him into tenth place in the overall league.  It was groans all around from the Second Basin where the fishing was hard, Dave Allen and Nathan Underwood book ended the section with 2lb 4ozs apiece from the end pegs.

With a big turnout expected for the Fur and Feather it will be crucial for the league leaders to get a result next Sunday, here's wishing you all a good draw on the morning.
