Little John Lakes – 6th January 2019

Friar Tuck Pool

  1. Nic Wort                    46lb  5oz
  2. Craig Foulds              22lb  7oz
  3. Bernard Robinson    19lb  2oz

Nic drew the much unfancied peg 15 down at the far end of the lake. He may (or may not!) have moaned a little about this draw but Nic fished a great match. He caught a carp on maggot and short pole straight from the ‘off’, before opting to fish long on corn skins to build his match winning weight.

Craig fished into the stick-ups which ran along the bank from his peg (number 12) to the next.  This area certainly held a few fish, which Craig slowly extracted throughout the match to secure second place.

Bernard drew peg 21 and had a quick flurry of skimmers on maggot over pellet before switching to fish against the aerator.  He fed some liquidised sweetcorn and this resulted in two quick carp.

It was an expensive day for John Farrow, who had very briefly left his rod unattended whilst he moved his pole sections. Needless to say, the motionless rod suddenly sprung into life and was soon dragged in and lost by a sneaky carp.
