The final round of this seasons Federation Winter League was fished on Sunday March 15th on the London Road Match Length of the Nottingham Canal

Conditions were not ideal with a gusting South Westerly wind blowing upstream and slightly in at all the field add to 
that the rain which lasted the best part of the match so conditions were not playing ball either. On the plus side though some of the better Roach which 
frequent the canal which were absent in last weeks fifth round match showed up.

One Angler who took advantage was match  winner Simon Harper [Midland AS] drawing the downstream end peg below the County Road Bridge fishing Caster on several lines from a top three to ten metre’s he took a fine net of Roach & Perch to finish up with 11 lbs – 0-2 ozs.

Second place went to Stu McLellan who fished  Maggot from a favoured peg in the Bay above the County Road Bridge he put a fine  net of mainly Roach together weighing 9 lbs – 06 ozs.

Third place went to Match Organiser Gary Smith [Midland AS] who drew the same peg as he fished in Round 5 fishing his favoured  maggot bait, taking a net of Roach & Perch to the scales weighing 8 lbs – 14 ozs.

4] Clive Williams    [Midland AS]         7 lbs – 05 ozs.

5] George Elliott    [Notts Castle AC]  4lbs - 09 ozs.

6] Pete Tomlinson [Midland AS]         4 lbs– 06 ozs.
