We are off and underway with this year's winter league. Cold conditions and plenty
of rain over the last few days has played a part today with the carp all but 1
shutting up shop and avoiding anything to do with food. Well done to all the lads
today tough day for some but bites to be had.

PBDAA winter league round 3. Again temperatures plummeted overnight after a
week or so of 4degrees weather and last weekend 11degrees, I'm sure someone has
it in for us with the weather snow for 3 hours this morning meant the water in
the lodge went a weird colour which is never a good sign. Rock hard day again but
someone has to win. Bites came mostly later on for the lads that caught. Next match
29/12/19 so from me and PBDAA I'd like to wish all the lads on the league, all
members and non members on the group Happy Christmas hope you all have an amazing
day see you in a couple of weeks Top 3 today..

Lowerhouse Winter Leaque 2019/20 Round 7
Final round of the PBDAA winter league today. First of all thanks to all the lads
on the league over the last few months it's been absolutely brilliant, we've had
a right laugh whilst catching all winter which in itself for most venues says alot
about the lodge.
So yea abit stormy today wind, rain and even hail and the end of the match but
we all cracked on with it. We had to rejig the pegging as the river bank was unfishable
due to the river coming over the top.
Lodge fished well for the first few hours until the colour from the river started
to creep in then it died for most. Tickets for next winter will be on sale from
