10 fished The match was a match of two halves, with 1 side of the pond in glorious sunshine, the other side was in the shade all day with a cold wind blowing in. Needless to say the fish had picked the warm side. (That being the far side)

A lot of the small Carp and Skimmers stocked late last year were showing in good numbers in the weigh-in.
