1st Winter League Match Results - Sunday 13th January

A qualified field turned out for this highly competitive and well supported winter league (13 teams of 5). Although the weather conditions were terrible at the weekend the lakes fished quite well, with only two DNW (one of which was local superstar Jim Barrowman!).
On Railway Lake, A section (pegs 1 - 18) fished the best with Neil Adcock (pictured below) from Browning Hotrods winning his section from peg 12 with 52 - 13 on a maggot feeder.
B Section (Railway pegs 24 - 42) was won by Barford Gold angler Dave Reeve who had 46 - 12 from peg 41.
Not entirely happy with his peg at the draw, Warren Martin (Sensas Big Hits) thought he may have drawn out of the action with peg 43 (it being the first peg in the prolific 40's). After not exactly running to his peg Warren managed to win this tough section by 6lb with 43 - 13.
Willow Lake was pegged on one side only (the Railway Lake bank - pegs 2 - 16). Historically the fish have been more concentrated at the top end but unfortunately they weren't on Sunday! Suprisingly, pegs 15 & 16 on Willow produced the two DNW's.
Top weight on the lake was from Fox Match consultant Mark Pollard (Dynamite) who had 67 - 10 from peg 6 (pictured below). Next door was Mulbarton's Pete Dimmer who came second from peg 7 with 43 - 09.
Finally to the Barford Pleasure Lake where Kevin Ford (Choppy) had a blinding match on the waggler with maggot catching some top quality Roach & Rudd on peg 6. He narrowly missed out on two places by ounces and his finishing weight was 15 - 5.
The top weight on the Pleasure Lake was from Bob Wessels (Dynamite), who had 44 - 15 from peg 7. With the wind off his back, Bob fished a groundbait feeder for the first hour and then was able to swap to pellet on the pole at 16mts to gain a mixed bag of Skimmers and small carp. The wind proved a hindrance for most of the other anglers, the next two top weights came from the 2 points. Lewis Murauwski (Lewis' Anglers Corner) had 39 - 6 from peg 30 and Daniel Brydon (Barford Misfits) had 25 - 10 from peg 15.
