This third qualifying round for the Boddington Classic Final was a mixed bag for the 43 anglers that fished.
The anglers pegged on the Dam wall had to face a strong wind all day whilst those pegged along the main bank had almost mill pool conditions. Peg 2 on the Dam was the favoured draw after it produced over 250lb the day before, and so it proved to be the best peg, but only just. The lucky angler to draw it was Jay Minter (Decoy Lakes) whom tempted 12 carp up to 15lb on pellet fished with bomb and teabag to just take victory on the day with 48.880kg.
Also taking 12 carp was Richard Broadway (Reepham Fishery) who caught at distance on the method and wafters at peg 96 for 46.025kg. Geoff Miles (Gold Valley) completed the frame from 3 with 8 carp for 37.580Kg also taken at distance on the method.
1st Jay Minter (Decoy Lakes) 48.880kg
2nd Richard Broadway (Reepham Fishery) 46.025kg
