16 anglers fished. Those that braved the wet and windy conditions, fished a close match, Keith’s winning catch from peg 8 included a decent carp and bream, he has caught on soft pellet over fishmeal groudbait on a long pole. Nathan’s second place net also included a nice carp off peg 11. The next 3 places all sat consecutive pegs 16 to 18 and were separated by 2oz. Benny came out on top with a lovely net of small carp and tench, Craig’s 6th place was the section winner from the shallower end and ensures that he remains top of the league. Hopefully the cormorant ropes will be off for our next competition in March, allowing more methods.
