A bit damp early Saturday morning, but overall a decent Weekend, we’ll not mention the wind that resulted in a few broken pole sections..!
Consistency was the key factor over the weekend, and despite some big weights recorded on day one, the anglers needed to do something similar on day two to ” frame “..!
Eddie Bibby stole the show on day 1 with a superb 93lb effort on Bruces Acre.. Nick Howe won the Queensberry section with 50lb +’, and Mick Slater took the honors on Wallace Lake, also with 50lb + of carp.
Myles Watt meanwhile, had done well on Bruces Acre peg 3 to finish 3rd with 31lb +, which would feature heavily going into the final day.
On day two, there was a shift in fortune for quite a few ” Framers ” on day one, drawing well, but with the fish not feeding as hard, they were struggling to put a weight together.
Eddie Bibby, top angler on day one drew well with peg 19 on Queensberry showing recent form, but it didn’t produce the goods this week, Matty Threfal, who d done well on Wallace Lake, did well drawing culvert peg 13 on day two, which won him the section, helping him to finish 2nd overall.
James Woodrow is worthy of a mention at this point, seemingly ” out of it ” with 6th place on day one, put together an excellent 47lb net of small ide and roach to win him the Wallace Lake section on day 2, and with others falling behind it boosted him up the leader board to 3rd overall.
Graham Carter and Mick Slater finished 4th & 5th overall respectively after finishing in the points on both days.
But it was Myles Watt, drawing well with end peg 28 on Queensberry Water, that came out on top, after a slow start and good last hour, he managed a 25lb net of carp, giving him a section win, 10pts and the overall win in the festival. Consistency was key..!
