Classic Qualifier – Specimen Lake
Sunday, 13th December 2009
A brilliant turn out of 31 anglers on a bitterly cold day. A severe frost overnight made for difficult presentation.
Winner on the day was Rob Wiltshire (Cwmbran Nobblers) who drew peg 19 on the burr bank. Rob cast long with method feeder and 6mm pellet to land carp to 10lbs and a total winning weight of 72-12-0.
2nd on the day was Neil McKinnen (Shakespeare) fresh from his win on Saturday. Neil drew next to the winner (peg 18) and also fished long with method feeder. Alternating between small boilie and sweetcorn hook baits, Neil weighed 59-13-0.
3rd placed Chris Hill (Mosella) had a very slow start to the match and after 1 and a half hours was dry netting. Sticking to his guns, Chris started to catch carp on pellet at 16m fishing the day with 56-8-0 thanks to a new 20lb fish at the death.
