The above weights were from Stemps Pond, Cart Pond results appear below.
After nearly a week of overnight frosts sport was expected to be slow and it certainly was for this second leg match which was again fished as a friendly against Portsmouth & District Angling Society.
On Stemps Pond Keith Hughes drew peg 14 and fished as close to the island as he could with his pole and decided to fish for the carp that hang around the island. Keith manged to hook six and land three, with a few small roach and skimmers for his winning total.
Second was Steve Simmonds, drawn on peg 2, he also decided to fish the pole to the island for the carp. Steve landed one and lost one very early on in the match, but then the island swim died so he concentrated on the waggler, catching small roach.
Third was Rab Butler, drawn on peg 7 who caught small roach and skimmers fairly steadily throughout the match, Rab used the pole at ranges between six and ten metres.
