Another great turnout out today, perfect conditions, the warm breeze from a southwesterly direction should have ensured good bags, but most found it tough going.

Leo fished a cracking match, using a small feeder and maggot hookbaits from peg 21 for a well deserved victory. Opposite him on pegs 3,4,5 and 6 the battle for the final positions in this year's Junior league was taking place.

Brodie managed second spot in the match on peg 6 thus ensuring a league win overall.

Imogen finished a very credible 3rd in the match and joint 3rd in the league.

Lewis has come 4th on peg 4 and Ted 5th on peg 3.

Once again we must thank Summerlands Tackle , Quay Sports, Baitech, generous members for help and support throughout the summer.

Despite the fierce winds our junior members turned out in force for the penultimate competition of the junior calendar, over half the pegs on George's lake were used.!

Poles and rods were gripped tightly as storm "Antoni" did it's best to spoil the day.

Brodie, on peg 15 , put a cracking net of mainly carp on the scales to win the day. Paste on the pole his tactics.

Second spot went to Findley on peg 8 , his chosen tactic to combat the high winds was a method feeder.

Jenson fished similarly on peg 11 for a well earned third spot.

Despite some very challenging conditions the youngsters all managed to weigh in, well done all.
