Pallister bags victory

Have your say

The icy conditions had a devastating effect on last week’s winter league fixtures and the only match to go ahead was GB Angling Club’s Tuesday excursion to Raker Lakes.

The outcome however was disappointing for six of the seven competing members as after five hours of fishing, the only fish to inconvenience the scalesman was a solitary two ounce roach.

Brian Pallister, the now retired creator of the Raker fishery, was the fortuitous recipient thanks to a single maggot offered on a bomb rig.

His endeavours, however, had very little effect on the premier league placings, which continue to be dominated by Phil Roberts and Alan Creaser, who are currently separated by just a single point.

Result: 1. Brian Pallister – a solo roach on maggot via a bomb rig for 0-2-0 from peg 11.

One weighed in.

Premiership: P.Roberts 79; A.Creaser 78; C.McNeil 69; B.Pallister 37; T.Tierney 35.

Conference: J.Creaser 79; R.Rogers 78; D.Creaser 75; P.Smith 35; L.Shann 24.

With something of a thaw now in progress, and milder weather forecast for the remainder of this week, it is more than likely that the re-arranged matches will be able to take place.

This includes the Tri-Star seventh round fixture this coming Sunday at Rosedale, GB Angling Open Series event on Monday at Brooklands, and The Contemptibles waggler only match, which will now be staged on Friday February 24 at Wykeham Carp Lake.
