Winter League RD2, Island Pool

Eight (8) anglers attended this second round of the 2022 Woodside winter league. Sport was a lot more difficult than the opening round on account of a very cold night producing the first proper frost of the year. Despite the drop in temperatures, however, competing anglers were quietly optimistic that the change in the weather would give the silverfish an opportunity to outshine the resident carp. How wrong we all were! It was a bit of a struggle for all involved with carp properly gatecrashing any chance of the silverfish fishing reaching its potential on the day.

Winner on the day, and making it two wins out of two, was Max Galaszewski. Max drew peg 8 on the far corner of the dam wall and opted to fish caster shallow for most of the match to find good quality roach. Despite a quiet spell midway through, Max managed to keep a fairly steady flow of fish coming to the net, including some nice perch late on, to offer 12-12-00 to the scales.

Second place went to Jeff Rush from neighbouring peg 10. Fishing maggot short to depth, Jeff also found some good quality roach and skimmer bream in between the carp to weigh in 10-14-00.

Completing the top three finish was Alan Cox from peg 12 opposite the island. Again, like most, Alan had a torrid time with the carp netting a total of twenty one (21) fish up to approx. 5lbs in between catching some nice roach, skimmer bream, perch and odd rudd. At the end of a busy five hours, Alan weighed in 09-14-00 to finish just 5oz in front of Worcester-based rod, Dan Hart.

After two rounds, Max Galaszweski remains in pole position and extends his lead ever so slightly with another steady performance from Alan Cox who holds on to second place. Jeff Rush maintains his third place position despite being pushed by Josh Sutterby, who sits outside the top three at the halfway stage of the competition.

Round 3 takes place on Saturday 26th November on Woodside pool.
