An amazing turn out for the last heat of our Winter League this year, nineteen anglers took part. The weather turned out to be fantastic on the day, clear skies and sunny conditions after a cold and frosty start. Fishing was tricky for the first couple of hours until the sun warmed the water layers and the fish started to move up in the water. Quite alot of fish were taken on pulling methods, the indicator accounted for a good amount too. A few were even taken on dries in the afternoon. The heat winner on the day was Andrew Willoughby catching 9 fish off all six pegs for 15 points. Close second was Keith Burnett from Newquay also catching 9 fish but for 13 points and third place was Roger Truscott with 8 fish for 12 points. A total number of 86 fish were caught and returned on the day giving a rod average of 4.5.
The presentation was held afterwards at the lodge with the overall results after seven heats.
1st Place was ALEX JOHNSTON with 11 place points winning £250
2nd Place was Dave Perks with 15 place points winning £200
3rd Place was Andrew Willoughby with 17 place points winning £150.
The draw for the Wild Card was made in front of all the competitors and the winner of that was Martin Stevens winning £77. The Blind Pairs went to Paul Nottle and Steve Retallack both winning £50 each.
Full results and video are shown below.
