Winter League Round 4: Sunday 28th November:
This was a match dominated by quality bream as the smaller fish that had been in evidence earlier in the week were just not interested on the day. Matt Sampson held onto the pole in windy conditions to bank a near 10lb bag of skimmers for the win. The only dissapointment for Matt was the £3 bonus kitty after learning he was fishing off the 'wood' peg. With three bream apiece it was a close call for second with Kevin Hill coming out on top, tempting slightly bigger bream on the tip, compared to Steve Whithouse who caught on the pole and waggler to finish third (Steve does have the consolation of going top of the winter league).
There were section wins for Ady Hicks (Second Basin) with two 'bronzers' for 4lb 12ozs, and Tony Hillas (Lower Basin) with a 6lb bag of skimmers. Ady also lost a carp that would have surly given him victory.
Fur and Feather up next, please remember you must purchase your tickets from Waterforont Shooting and Fishing by close of play Sunday 12th December.
