2014 - River soar winter league No.5 November 23rd run by the Angling Trust

Friday returned from my engineering contract in a poor state due to the start of a Winter flu type bug . Had informed Captain Stu to get a replacement however there was none so i was in the team. Arriving at the draw Sunday morning i was greeted with a good peg (under normal river conditions) however when arriving at the peg it resembled a jacuzzi ! Undaunted i proceeded to set up :

- Flat float - 8 gram Torpedo Cralusso
- Mars Bleu Maurizio Schiepatti 0.75gr for surface work and bleak snatching
- A 3gr Reglo Maurizio Schiepatti at 8' depth .
- Feeder was a Classic Competition 12' using Special feeder line 0.18 with a Classic Power 0.14 bottom line to a 4590 series 16's hook with alternating 20/30gr SENSAS cage feeders.

My feature ……lots of turbulence passing on the surface from the flow as it hit the debris in the trees and possibly below the surface.

Downstream and peg 12
To my left looked like goodish area to gain a few stray bleak but the turbulence was in and out of the reeds with the river rising all the time. Started with a see through perch first put in after placing 5 hard balls of leam / bros Gardons laced with goodies on my 6m pole line . It was not till i seen the angler to my take three small fish on the feeder close in which really prompted me to do the same . Only in the last 2 hours did i manage 2 small skimmers and a roach to reach a grand total of 400 grams !!

The match soon ended as the first 5 pegs weighed in a total of 2.5 kilos between us , the results went ;
1000 - 200 - 600 - 400 - 250 grams

Then the different world got weighed in with top weight 11.3 kilos and 4 and 3 kilos as back up weights

Steve Hurst of Wigston AC Winner of the section with 11300

With one match to go in the series its apparent that the River Soar is truly back on the map and only greater things can come from this Winter league series and all the other matches taken place this year .
Again a massive thanks to Joff and Brian for a job well done.
