Not many matches being held on the bottom lake recently due to the bad weather so it was nice to see a few anglers enjoying a bit of better weather and a few fish, Roy fished three line rotated maggots and pellet, two lines across to the far bank and a margin line to his left giving him a fairly comfortable victory this week, back up weight were not to shabby to be fair, thinking of running a league in the next few weeks….. let me know if your up for it!

The weather man said it would start raining at 7am and it did and only eased for the weigh in, Roy fished a 4mm expanded pellet most of the way across to the far bank and land 27 carp not a silver fish in sight, this is the second week that the silver fish haven’t showed, Roy wasn’t complaining

What a cold snap it was not even a pocket full of bangers would keep you warm but Roy braved the elements and slowly put together a few fish just off the far bank margin, Roy put his fair in the trusted pellet and plugged away feeding very little and teasing a few bites in between shivering, no silver fish caught during the match today only carp so those bream must be sulking big time.

Billy Lucas, Kings Langley, peg 12, 107-0-0

Don’t complicate things is the moral to this story, Billy has fished either side of keenest with meat catching very little to start with but then a great second half of the match, small carp and skimmers, about time this lad had a decent sponsor, well done Bill

“Make mine a double”, Trevor Stanley makes it two wins in two…

Trevor Stanley, Lake John Fishery, peg 8, 52-8-0

So off a ton of silvers on Wednesday Trevor had to change the feeding and the whole approach to this match fishing half depth first with bread and then on the meat, feeding was minimal to almost nothing tight to the far bank margin, and unlike Wednesday it was an all out carp match, good darts Trevski…. now you can let your face know how pleased you are you misog, lol

Roy the pellet bagged up on the long pole towards the centre of the bridge, Roy makes the pellet work what ever the weather and normally finds the bigger fish, a mixed bag today and a comfortable win on a not such a comfortable cold windy day…

Browning-Wickford Ace Paul Hyde puts all of last weeks demons to bed with a win….

Paul Hyde, Browning-Wickford, peg 6, 37-12-0

Last week in the last round of the winter league Paul had a mare the suicide note was written and life couldn’t get any worst thankfully being a seasoned pro he shrugged it off and lives to tell the tale of how easy it was to pinch a little win today, this dobbing bread has been all the rage so Paul gave it a good go but failed to score so reverted back to his method of micro pellet feed and 4mm expander to the hook down the track in the deeper water, that worked just fine and almost smiled for the camera as well lol

I know i wont get any bait today just ponce a bit of bread from the cafe and get the nice lady to put it in the microwave and warm it up all nice so the fishes can like it a lot, not a lot of bread needed just punched a 6mm to the hook and fish it 6” off the bottom right tight to the reeds, that’ll be great if that works, guess what it did……. Scanlan you ponce, lol good effort mate
