The Grange Pond Winter League, organised by Richard Lyon alongside Head Bailiff Paul Wheeldon, commenced on a bitterly cold, overcast and foggy day on Sunday 19 December.
Everyone was expecting a real struggle for bites and very low weights, but most were pleasantly surprised with the result:
Filled the top five places. The winner caught on bomb with various hook baits, the runner up had 5 carp on the method feeder and one on pole, third caught carp on bomb and bread.
The remaining three matches are on Sundays - January 16, February 13 and March 13.
