A COLD day with a strong wind faced Malvern Anglers for their fourth winter league match on Sycamore pool at Broadheath Fishery.

While some were lucky to draw partially-sheltered pegs, others faced the teeth of the wind that made fishing difficult with bites almost impossible to detect.

But Lee Harman, drawn in a favoured corner peg, caught consistently throughout using swim feeder with maggot bait to net a dozen carp for a winning weight of 53lb 7oz.

Along the more open and windier side of the pool, John Shaw used swim feeder with worm bait to finish second with a 26-7 net that included a bream and carp, including one of over 10lb.

On the more sheltered side, Frank Edwards had some smaller carp to weigh 12-2 for third place, just ahead of Steve Warren with a similar net of fish for 10-14.

Ian Goddard caught 2-12 and Chris Loveridge 2-7.
