August 30th Janson Match Lake, Spall Shield

  1. Craig Welbourne  129lb 10oz
  2. Barry Stokes         123lb  2oz
  3. Richard Nickels     113lb  7oz

A total of 18 anglers fished this match, returning an impressive average weight of over 71lb per person.

Craig drew peg 32 and caught the majority of his fish from the far bank, using dead maggots on the hook.  He not only won the match, but also knocked Mark Baker out of the KO Cup from the next peg.  Craig will now meet Barry Stokes in the final at Makins Lake 4.  Judging from their weights and positions in this match, that promises to be quite a battle!

Junior member Daniel Farrow has had a terrific season and continues to extend the Junior Match Record.  Daniel was on peg 36 and finished the match within a few ounces of the magic ‘tonne’, catching on expander pellets on the short pole and beating his dad in the process. Unfortunately for us adults, Daniel Farrow will not be a junior next season!!
