  3. John Farrow       20lb  2oz

With the weather forecast promising a wet and windy day, the brave RoTAS 12 turned up ready to do battle with the elements.  As it was, the wind was not too bad, although the same couldn’t be said for the rain . . .

The top three weights all came from the same end of the lake, an area sheltered a little more from the wind than the rest of the pool. Dave Burton came out on top, catching small carp against the island from peg 3, fishing a feeder with punched bread on the hook.

Second and third places went to son and father double act, Ian and John Farrow who, despite struggling throughout most of the match, found a couple of lumps late on down the edge.

Current league leaders Josh Derry and Nic Wort both lost a few decent fish at the net which could otherwise have put them near the top on the day.

It’s all to play for in the final Winter League match, to be fished at Portland Waters on Long Island.
