16 Anglers signed on to fish the Winter Series, only 6 turned up for Peg building.
Funny how a bit of work scares some people?. Never mind it will just take longer
for the six that turned up. The lake was still frozen over, but as the day went on it was
thawing quite rapidly. When the Sun came out, it was quite warm.
Only one of us fell over on our arse today (well done Dickie). We took our time,
and dug out the 8 Pegs required. Boarded them up, and back filled them.
It still took six of us 5 hours to do. If sixteen would have turned up, we would have
all been going home after an hour, and a half. (trying my hardest to make them
feel guilty,as i know a lot of em will be reading this).
I know a few of the boys were fishing elton farm, and when Jason phoned Steve Evans up,
to ask how they were doing, Stevie boy was blanking (AGAIN). Andy Salcombe had
one carp, and lost two. Most of the others were'nt fairing any better either.
Should of came Peg building, Justice will always get its own back!.(tee he).
Anyway we are not bitter, and twisted. Just hope they all draw shite pegs next week.
Here,s some pics of the Hero's.(and the frozen lake).

Fair play, Dickie's not the one to give up.
For some reason they decided to dig it out before
