Winter League R7 2013

Monday, 11 February 2013

Conditions were the worst of the season with the paddles on the lock gates being opened and closed and the canal falling a foot and then refilling at least twice throughout the contest.  It was no surprise that only the big beasts were feeding and that the big weights came out of the usual swims.  Ady Larkins shook off the 'Golden Peg' monkey and landed five slabs (best 5lb 9oz) with a few skimmers and dog roach for a 23lb haul that won the contest and the £100 golden peg bonus.  League wise, it was also a good day for Adrian 'Sailor' Hill who took a couple of slabs, a small carp and a dog roach for 12lbs and second place.  With title contenders Dick Turner and Simon Allen pegged out of it in the Second Basin,  four points now covers the top three as Ady moves into second and Sailor third with four contests to go.  Brother Kevin Hill also found the slabs on peg 14 to take third place and a clean sweep for the Lower Wharf.  Simon Hockaday landed two of the three fish caught from Second Basin for a section win with Dave Allen catching the other, a 5lb 2oz bream, with only 10 minutes to go (good job you didn't pack up to watch the rugby Dave).

Let us hope thats the worse competition condition and fishing wise behind us!
