Round 5 of Angling Trust Winterleague

Today's winner Nigel Franks, with an impressive bag of fish

Round 5 Angling Trust Winter League
After fishing Sunday’s Open, I couldn’t wait until next week’s winter league and was lucky enough to be fishing the Wednesdays midweek match.  I even went onto win the midweek match with 8lb 9oz and my team mate Neil Richards (who is on fire at the moment) was 2nd 7lb.  However, I couldn’t make the round as I went to Cypruss on a last minute deal, and when I wrote this is was article I was by the pool in 20oc with a beer.  Awesome, but I did feel lost, as it was Sunday and for once I wasn’t fishing, and if anybody knows me I am anorak when it comes to fishing and will go whatever the weather or venue is.

I spoke to most of team mates on the phone and things looked promising as we seemed to have a pretty fair draw.  Andy Pollard was on the end peg at the wharf, which was a fair draw, but the bay end was going to be better for bonus fish.  Team Captain was end peg at Potters and therefore a section win was on the cards (which happened, well done Mark)  Couple of the another guys had drawl well and there was a buzz in the air, despite me been in Gatwick Airport 150 miles away.  However, when i was in the bar in Cypruss, I discovered that we were second place and Devizes had won the Match by two points and GBMV were third.

To make matters worse I’m going to miss the final round on the River, but to be honest I can’t see GBMV been beat for the league as they are impressive 4 points clear and we are 3 points clear of Devizes, which without tempting fate, we should be ok.
