A blustery day most anglers opted for short pole fished down the side and it paid off for the top two because the lakes carp made a rare appearance. Both fished pole and meat and corn down the side but it was Jim that came out top with 8 carp – 8lb and a few skimmers and tench, Neil had 5 carp – 6lb plus skimmers and tench – 1lb 3rd place went to John Darby fishing pole and pellet sort for a fine net of skimmers – 2lb
