River Trent (Radcliffe) – 25th September 2016

Radcliffe Viaducts (27-47)  (Radcliffe Cup)

  1. Gary Pilsworth    13lb 11oz
  2. Dave Burton        11lb 14oz
  3. Andy Carr              9lb  6oz

A total of 13 people turned up to tackle the mighty Trent and Gary finished up as top rod on the day, catching a mixed net of roach, dace and perch on the pole and waggler from peg 18.

Dave Burton was runner up, and included three 2lb+ perch in his weight, taken on maggot feeder cast downstream at peg 21.

Andy Carr’s 9lb 6oz from peg 26 was enough to see him complete the frame, and it was also good enough for him to win the RoTAS Knockout Cup, ending up just over 2lb clear of Mark Baker’s 4th place weight of 7lb 4oz.

Charlotte Baker fished the river for her first time ever (and hopefully not the last)!  Fishing the maggot feeder she managed to come a creditable 7th with 2lb 3oz.
