Former Premier League footballer Jimmy Bullard proved he’s no slouch in matches of another sort when winning the Silver Fish Festival at Devon’s Stafford Moor Fishery… an especially impressive achievement when you realise former World Match Fishing Champion Will Raison was among his rivals.
Jamie totalled five points to take the trophy with relative ease, basing his approach around fishing pellet at 14 metres over groundbait.
That was too good for Mark Goddard, who finished with seven points but did have the biggest weight of 44lb 7oz. Will Raison also had seven points but was pipped on weight… with Ian Dixon fourth. The Biggest Perch award went to Adam Lee with a 3lb 1oz beauty.
