An outstanding bream weight of 153-12-0, caught by Hereford angler Deron Harper was the highlight of the latest AT RiverFest qualifier on the Bristol Avon.
Drawn at peg 59 in B Zone, Deron feeder fished with casters and worms for the 41 fish catch, which put more than 30lb on the previous best qualifying weight!
Joining Deron in the final is 2014 RiverFest champion Steve Sadler, who fished in similar style to the winner for a 32-7-0 catch of bream from peg 33 to win A Zone.
C Zone winner at the downstreamend peg 146, was Tim Ford. Tim won the zone with a pole caught 18-4-0 of skimmers and roach.
