Winter League 2022/2023 (Individual Anglers)

Individual Winter League 2022/23


So today was the last one of the 14 matches of the Meadow Farm Cottages Winter series singles.

27 anglers participated in the winter series where they had 14 matches to fish and take their best 10 scores allowing 4 dropped matches.

Unfortunately we did lose one match due to frozen lakes but other than that it has fished well all the way through.

We have seen some fantastic winter weights and a close series throughout.


But there has to be an overall winner, and with an impressive 13 points Lee Coomber took the honours and picked up 1st place and a nice winners payout.


2nd went to Ian Boden on 18 points who was chasing Lee all the way.

Ian also helped out to run the series, big thanks Ian.


3rd, 4th and 5th all came in on 21 points so overall weight played a part here:

3rd Stu Thornton

4th Paul Ready

5th Scott Webster

Well done to all who participated especially the overall top 5 who all picked up prize money

Meadow farm cottages open match and last of the winter series.

28 anglers booked in including 21 of the series anglers all looking to maximise on their points and get into that top 5.

It was definitely a colder day and the water temperature is still below 7 degrees, but once again the fish were still on the feed and the bites were coming from everywhere.

Close matches again on all lakes so worth mentioning the top 5.

Top honours on the day went to Lee Coomber , Paul Ready and Stu Thornton all winning their lakes and picking up 1 series point a piece.

With a drop in temperature it was back to a cold days fishing for the 28 anglers booked in today.

With the water temperature only just above 7 degrees it was a fair drop from last weeks 8.5 and there were series points to score with this being penultimate match in the winter series.

Top weight on the day and well done to Ian Rollett bagging up on the F1’s again on the Canal.

Great to see that young man William Hughes taking top honours on Silvers and another great performance from Stu Bradford bagging up carp and F1’s on Silvers.

With yet another frost last night we arrived to a very thin layer of ice , but nothing that warranted ice breakers and it soon cleared.

We had 28 anglers today who were all up for a good match and with today also being one of our winter series matches there were points up for grabs.

All in and the bites started early on Willow and the Canal with Silvers not far behind.

Good to see the Ide on the feed again and again several F1 showing up.

Open match to include series points today and it was once again a cold start.

Despite all efforts through the week to keep the lakes clear of ice we were fighting a losing battle . However with everyone keen to fish we cleared the pegs required and the match was on.

With a warm day ahead and no rain or wind everyone was well up for a challenging day of winter fishing.

Well done Scotty running away with it on the canal and Gary getting of to a decent start on Willow.

Lee and Bob drew the favoured pegs on silver and sitting next to each other it was a well fought match seeing them both catching alternate Ide.

Saturday open at Meadow Farm Cottages and another solid turn out with 27 anglers all in for an open draw across all three lakes. This match was also one of the winter series matches so plenty fishing for points today!!

Another wet start but the light rain did clear out shortly after the draw. Plenty of rain during the week again though which has left Willow gin clear but both canals holding on to some colour.

First a shout out to the in form Wayne Anderson weighing in yet another 100lb and taking the win on silvers.

Well done Andy Page taking the win on canal beating Lee Coomber by 5oz and into second place. Always good to see Bob Nudd also getting in the frame.

Well done John Dale taking the win on Willow which proved to be a very challenging match for most.

19th Nov was the second open match across all lakes of the 14 match winter series.

Once again it was a close and well contested match between the guys signed up. And then there was a certain Mr Anderson who went rogue and had a good go at emptying Willow.

Top tactics and great angling from Lee Coomber, Stu Thornton and Paul Ready who all scored a point a piece today for the series.
