    Victoria Products League Round Six

    Despite the poor fishing on the previous canal match twenty five anglers still turned out for the sixth round of the Victoria Products League at the Lime Kilns. With another clear bright sky and a bitterly cold wind forecast prospects were not looking good and once again the anglers were not surprised with ten not managing to record a result and many not having a bite all day. Winner on the day was Duncan Hill on peg eleven who got off to a great start landing his first tench in the first twenty minutes and netting another before the end of the 1st hour. He had a long wait before catching his third half way through the competition to end up with 5k150g. This looked to be easily enough to win the match until Dave Walton put on a late surge catching two Tench in the last hour to make things interesting. His catch of 3k760g enough to secure 2nd and 8 league points. Third and fourth were very close with Ray Slack just edging it by an ounce with two small Tench for 2k430g to Gary Thornton's 2k400g catch of a single Tench and a couple of bits. The ten league points he picked up were enough to push into the top position of the Victoria Products League by two points at the half way stage with six rounds remaining. There were three section winners: Section A: Brian Sussex 0k 820g; Section B: Robert Fuller (Default) 0k230g; Section C Ken Penberth (Default) 0k460g.
