- Mike Atherton 24lb 6oz
Only five anglers fished this latest round of the RoTAS Winter League. The weather was a bit cooler after the warmer weather of the last couple of weeks; it was windy and rained for most of the day too!
Still, with only five fishing the match each angler had plenty of water – even though the bailiff fished on peg 4 for the day.
The match started a bit slow for everyone, with odd fish being caught dobbing, but a lot of foul hooking was going on again as the carp were not really feeding.
Nic struggled in the morning on peg 13, foul hooking a few but catching the odd fish. He also fed a line down the track with pellet and corn and went on this line for the last hour and a half, catching carp consistently for the rest of the match for the win.
Rich drew peg 7 (as Mark was not there to draw it!!) and fished down the track to catch a good net of silvers, together with a few small carp dobbing over, for his 2nd place.
Mike was on peg 1 and had 5 pegs to fish in, but caught mainly down towards Nic on 13, dobbing, to complete the frame.
