60 Anglers returned to Monks Lakes in Kent today (9th September) for the 3rd qualifier of “Fish to Win” 2009, and after the previous weeks bad weather conditions everyone was in buoyant mood and hoping to be drawn on Match Lake 2.
However it was the last person to be weighed in on peg 44 on Lake 1 which came up with the spoils and snapping victory from the jaws of Robbie Taylor by a narrow margin of just over 4lbs as former England International Dave Vincent (Browning – Hotrods) came up trumps winning the match and qualifying for the final with 136lb 2oz of mainly carp and barbel caught on maggot fished over pellet.
Going one place better than last week was 22 year old Robbie Taylor (Preston Innovations – Delcac) from peg 45 on Match Lake 2 with 131lb 12oz all caught in close on caster who also qualifies for the final.
In 3rd place on peg 68 with 112lb 8oz was last weeks winner Dave Sandford (Map – Medway Tackle) just beating Russ Berryman (Surrey Starlets) by 4oz who finished 4th with 112lb 4oz who also picked up his 2nd section win of the tournament.
In 5th place on peg 48 was Graham Dack (Middy) with 110lb 4oz followed by Ben Emery (Unattached) with 102lb from peg 67 in 6th Place
The competition now moves to Essex for round 4 on Wednesday 16th September at Newland Hall in Chelmsford where the biggest weights of the competition are expected.
