Unfortunately the venue did not perform quite as well as we had expected and the big carp did not appear in any great numbers.
There were one or two but most weights were made up of a great deal of silver fish with one surprise barbel and a few bream.
Biggest fish of the day was a 10lb 7oz carp for Steve Guzy, unfortunately for Steve he caught it about 10mins after the match had finished so it did not count.
However a 9lb 4oz carp for Joe Staff did count as he hooked it about 5mins before the end.
Ian Chandler our PGM had a good total weight of 23lb 10oz which was remarkable as it was made up entirely of small silver fish, probably nothing over a pound and not one carp!
Winner was Michael Bourke closely followed by Michael Bourke Jnr
