HAJAC Winter League
THE second round of this year's HAJAC was fished on Sunday with sections at Raveley Drain and on Glassmoor Bank.
Although some anglers struggled after a hard frost, the fishing, in general, was surprisingly good.
The individual winner, for the second consecutive week, was Hotrods' Andy Leathers. He made the most of his peg by the bridge at Raveley to weigh in with 12lb 10oz.
Stanjay's Steve Gordon and Brampton's Graham Welton also caught 12lb-plus weights for second and third places.
Teamwise, leaders Browning Hotrods were only sixth on the day with three of the four Stanjay teams taking the top three places. March and Wades also finished in front of Hotrods.
Stanjay Specials now top the league after a first and a second place finish. This week sees the winter pairs on Decoy Lakes with the league matches resuming the following Sunday.

Stanjay Saturday Open
WITH a small field of anglers, it was decided to fish on Mill Lode on a beautiful afternoon.
The top two places were very close with Ian Benton finishing just ounces in front of Stanjay teammate Steve Gordon, both with more than 9lbs of roach.

RESULT: 1 Steve Ashwell St Neots 18lb 8oz, 2 Ricky Ashwell 10lb 2oz, 3 Graham Gooddraw 8lb.
WITH two sudden frosts after a mild spell, fishing was difficult on Sunday on the village stretch of Chapel Farm.
This did, however, produce a very close match with Terry Moat just emerging the winner from Ted Seeby, Kevin Gaunt and Tony Ingram. Only eight ounces covered the four anglers.
RESULT: 1 Terry Moat 4lb 2oz, 2 Ted Seeby 3lb 14oz, 3 Kevin Gaunt 3lb 11oz, 4 Tony Ingram 3lb 10oz.
