Although the venue was ice free the water temperatures were very low.  The match commenced with the cold wind blowing from the SW and into the anglers, but ended with it from the NW (onto our backs), so using the "deeps", which gave shelter, was the correct decision, especially as everyone caught fish.

Match Two of the 2021-2022 Grange Pond Winter League (fished by and entry of 15 anglers) was held on Sunday 16 January.  On arrival the pond was clear of ice, but as anglers tackled up a thin layer of ice could be seen spreading across the surface and by the start most of the lake was covered.
