23 Radcliffe hopefuls turned out to fish the Match Lake at Janson’s Fishery. At the draw, everyone was hoping for peg 12 or a peg in the 30’s. However, ‘true to style’, it was Mark Baker who finally drew peg 12!

The match got under way and it soon became obvious that the lake was not going to fish as everyone had hoped for. Nic Wort got off to a good start catching shallow on maggots, before switching to fishing down the edge. Mark Baker eventually took a hard-earned victory, catching on worm with a final weight of 122lb 10oz. Nic Wort came in second overall with 114lb 7oz and Andrew Patton fished a good match to finish third with a weight of 89lb 2oz.

Angler of the day went to Phil Bridges who had a fantastic net of skimmers – well done Phil!
