16th December 2017 Folly Lake – Risby Park
Hi ..here’s yesterday’s result from Risby…
With the ice being over 2 inches thick on The Folly, the 10 lads who were hard, (daft), enough opted to break the thinner ice on Tench… it was still over an inch thick !!
It was the last of the 11 league matches & all to play for…Top 5 were being paid out & 5 of the lads had a chance of getting in the frame for 3rd to 5th, with Willy & Jason fighting it out for 1st.
The top 5 as things stood prior to the last match was 1st Willy, 2nd Jason, 3rd Trev Mc, 4th Robbo & 5th Jarvo.
The all-in had to be put back til 10:15 as the ice took ages to break, due to the failing light the match was still finished at 3pm.
Fittingly, Willy & Jas drew next to each other on pegs 17 & 18 respectively.
Willy set off like a train & caught some perch after only 30 minutes of the all-in, then slowly but surely other lads had odd fish.
I had a late run of some decent roach & a couple of skimmers, plus a dozen or so.small perch to win the match with 8:07 off peg 23.
Jas took 2nd with 8:05 & Willy took 3rd with 6:11.
Pully was 4th with 6:00…despite the freezing cold, only 2 of the 10 lads blanked.
1st Willy Eyre 83 points
2nd Jason Moody 82 points
3rd Robbo 74 points
4th Trev Mc 71 points
5th Pat Taylor 69 points (197lbs)
Unluckily for Phil Jarvis he also amassed 69 points but his total weight was 165lbs.
Thanks to everyone who fished it’s been a great league !!
Open Match next Saturday..8:00 draw.
