Peg 32 was the winning peg this week; this is how good it can perform with a decent angler on it….

This peg was only good for third place on Sunday during the second round of the winter league and the reason for that is simple Vandervliet made a right pigs ear of it, anyway that’s enough about him Mark set to his peg on a shorter line with the knowledge of strong winds forecast so opted for the more manageable 10m line, fishing 4mm expander pellet over ground bait for very respectable days fishing mind you just like his old school mate Vandervliet its very rare you’ll see him on a bad peg either, lol, it’s really not worth winning a match here because you never get any praise from the bloke who writes these reports, and apparently there are a few people that log on and have a look just to see who is gonna get a gobbing off, this was true of Mark’s father in law Peter Dighton who regularly clicked on the site to have a read and chuckle at how well the boys have done on the match’s, sadly Peter passed away on Jan 3rd Saturday morning very suddenly. Mark would like to dedicate this win to Peter, who was also a regular club angler to Lake John and a sad loss, all our thoughts go out to family at this time from everyone at Lake John Fishery. Peter Dighton one of lifes true gentleman
