After being told the lake was frozen on Friday afternoon and putting an email out to all that had booked in saying bring you ice breaker. We turned up to a mild 5 deg C morning to find all the ice had melted. Knowing this meant that cold water had fallen through the pond we knew things would be a little hard to start with, but hoped for a good last couple of hours at least. With 5 anglers pegged on each side we started with everyone kicking off with very little or no feed to get a feel for what would happen, and as it turned out not a lot.

In first place was Graham fishing peg 1 he had a couple of F1’s dobbing backed up with a lot of small silver fish.

Second was Gary in peg 8 with 1 mirror carp and a small perch on worm.

Steve on peg 7 had a single F1 on maggot .
