Doughnut Pool (Winter League – Match 4)
- Mark Baker 21lb 12oz
- John Farrow 20lb 8oz
- Mike Atherton 12lb 15oz
What a cold day that was! The owner of Jansons left the spinner on the Doughnut Lake and this prevented the lake from freezing, unlike the rest of the complex.
Despite the weather, 10 anglers turned up and Mark won his second match of the series so far, taking six carp from ‘lucky’ peg 13 for his winning weight. His catch was boosted by an 8lb+ carp which took his dead maggot just 10 minutes before the whistle for the “all out”.
John Farrow had a very frustrating day. He drew in-form peg 7 but unfortunately went on to lose 17 fish throughout the match, costing him rather dearly in the end.
