Winter League R6 2014

Monday, 27 January 2014

Report From Sunday 26th

The season of bad weather continued with anglers battling high winds and showers, so much so pegs 1 and 2 were located to the rear of Falcon Car Park to take advantage of the shelter afforded by the fir trees.  Simon Allen managed to hang on to his pole to amass 21lbs of slabs, skimmers and roach, alternating between worm and maggot throughout the day.  Simon lost a lot of other fish due to the conditions so when the weather clears someone will be onto a bumber haul from the Lower Basin.  Peter 'Tacker' Giles stayed on the tip for the duration and using worms tempted a series of slabs and skimmers for a 16lbs haul and second place.  Len Codlin drew peg 7 and endured the worst of weather with no protection from the wind.  However, using waggler tactics he brought over 2lbs of roach to the bank and a bonus 5lb carp late on that earned a deserved third place.  Matt Sampson stuck it out on the quiver tip and it was banded breadflake that tempted a solatary carp for the section win, pipping Dave Allen (who drew the most comfortable peg of the day) by two ounces.  Paul Braund secured the narrows section win with 9 roach for just over the pound taken on maggot and breadpunch using a 'very' short pole.

The weather can't get any worse, can it?
