Ice in the car park and in the margins warned that bites might be hard to tempt for the dozen who turned out to fish the annual pairs contest. In the first two hours almost all of the bites came at the first couple of pegs closest to the aerator.
Rich Farrow made the most of peg 2 where fish were seen "topping". Skimmers, roach, rudd & perch made up a winning return of 5lb 4ozs. Rich pole fished maggot to the lily pads and the far shelf. The weight was enough to win the pairs although his partner Rich Goodwin contributed a massive half an ounce!
Second best was Dave Batcheldor with a bream and four skimmers for 3lbs 7ozs.from peg 21. Single red maggot presented over a bed of ground bait was the method with most of the fish coming in the last hour.
