King Col April 2016 The spring league finalists
Colin Bartlett, Lake John-Drennan, peg 9, 67-8-0

There is a new King John and its yours truly officially now known as OLD KING COL, the banter was flying and the ex King ( Ricky Martinelli )is now a peasant again, i must admit the draw was kind but the job still had to get done, and with the far bank reed margin looking inviting it was a shallow 6mm expander that tempted a few fish early, and it was my first time using the GORILLA elastic which i have renamed it steering wheel elastic because when you hook them carp you just steer them around all the snags straight into your landing net, PUKKA stuff, a few skimmers short and left hand margin was all it took to be crowned the new King of the Spring league.
