Eleven (11) anglers from Brandhall Conservative club attended this Sunday contest on the Island pool. Conditions on the day saw continued bright sun and warm ambient temperatures with much of the carp stock cruising in the upper layers.
Winner on the day was Giuseppe Acampora from peg 2. Fishing both the method feeder down his own bank into the next peg along, he was able to find a good stamp of fish before switching to his edges late on with corn over fishery micro pellet to end proceedings with 67-08-00.
Trevor Newey finished in second place from neighbouring peg 3 with a superb net of silvers plus a healthy 40lb plus of small carp all taken on caster to offer 58-10-00 to the scales.
Rounding off the main frame finish on the day was Paul Newey from peg 11 on the far bank beneath the oak trees. Fishing corn, pellet and caster down his edge, Paul found mostly carp to weigh in 50-04-00 come the end of the five hours.
