The weather was yet again going to be a dictating factor in this weeks Winter Qualifier, with 13 brave souls competing on what can only be described as a bitterly cold day. As the turn out was below average, the match was fished on Raven Lake with 2 golden pegs up for grabs, the anglers drew and headed of to their pegs.
At the all in the wind got up and introduced squally showers which kept the water temperature down to 2 degrees, which made for a very hard but fare match. Top spot went to Mark Pollard yet again! He fished bread and maggot on the long pole to take 23lbs 3ozs from peg 25 for the match win. next door on peg 27 was Jamie McGuire who fished a steady match to put 20lbs 08ozs on the scales.
1 – Mark Pollard – Matrix/Hinders – Peg 25 – 23lbs 03ozs
