Alders Farm Winter League Final round
With Got Baits going into the final round of this year’s winter league with a commanding lead it seemed the only thing that could stop them was adverse weather and a bad draw.
On getting to the fishery everyone was greeted with frozen lakes whilst not everyone was happy, it opened up the potential of an upset. Gary Picasso Thorpe went to the draw bag and drew what they (Got Baits) considered to be a half reasonable draw taking into consideration the conditions, whilst their main rivals Turbertini had what can only be described as the worst possible team draw going so bad that the feeling in the got camp was it was all over due to turbertinis bad draw.
As the match unfolded the weather was having a dramatic effect on the fishing, and with the Got Baits lads not even having a bite between them it looked like an upset was on the cards, but again the weather played its part warming up enough to melt the ice, enough for Martin (The Milton Keynes Fairy) Tinkerbelle Green to reach the island with his waggler and was immediately rewarded with a hard fighting carp.
Up on the Silver Lake Nick D had caught a few as did Gary Page (Got Baits) whilst Matt Grant (Turbertini) on possibly the worst peg on the lake and Mick McMillan were both struggling and the league title looked like it was on its way to Got Baits.
Down on Ash Lake Gary Thorpe stunned everyone by dumping in two full pots of Atomic Cloud and rested it for half an hour, then went over the top on double red Atomic maggot and proceeded to smash the section out of site with 12 late carp.
It was apparent that Got Baits had done enough to regain the title for a third time whilst the dreadful draw that Turbertini had showed as they slumped to last place on the day with their worst result in the history of the league, it shows that no matter what had the draws been reversed then Turbrtini would have regained the title.
