A bit drizzly in the morning, but cleared up and remained dry most of the day, overcast, mild but a bit of a stiff breeze at times.
It was all to fish for today with quite a few anglers in contention, and the drawbag would play a big part in the outcome of today’s match.
Expectations were high at the draw, with everyone keeping an eye on who’d drawn where.
To put a spanner in the works… Rosen Arsov drew end peg 32 ( section winner yesterday.), Ian Whitson drew peg 33 (. Section winner yesterday.) and Barry Young drew peg 35 (. 2nd in section yesterday.)… That sorted out 3 of them all in the same section on Wallace Lake… Although it did make Rosen a hot 🔥 favourite.!

Meanwhile, Mark Clow ( section winner yesterday) drew peg 27 on Queensberry, a tough section to be in, with Myles Watt ( second in section yesterday.) also in the same section. with Mike Hammond ( section winner yesterday) in the top section on peg 19… Again another tough one.
As the match progressed the writing was on the wall in the first hour. Rosen on end peg 32 opted to fish the method feeder, and with the Carp responding well he barely put it down all day. Rosen fished an excellent match to catch 40 + carp… which blew the rest of the field away 😁 At the weigh-in there was no surprise when THREE weighs were needed… A fantastic 112lbs 13oz. This gave Rosen a second section win, scoring a perfect 👌 2pts to win the overall festival and scoop the top £1000 prize 🏆.
A weight worthy of winning any final.. Congratulations Rosen. 😁
Ian Whitson on the next peg 33 had a decent day too, weighing on 65lb 1oz of carp, again caught on the method feeder which gave him 2nd in section. Ian finished on 3pts to finish 2nd overall in the festival… Well done Ian.!!
Barry Young managed a 3rd with 46lbs of ide and carp caught on the pole from peg 35.
Wallace Lake Section 2 was won by Nick Aldersey with a good net of carp on the method feeder and a few silvers on the pole for 50lb 4oz, with Gary McKay finishing second in section 2 with a nice net of ide caught on the pole for 41lb 4oz.
All in all Wallace Lake fished very well throughout today with some lovely nets of fish caught by all.
On Queensberry Water section 1, Matt Baxter came out on top with 50lb 8oz, mainly carp caught on the method feeder, with John Wright finishing second in section with a respectable 37lbs.
Section 2 and a few twists and turns along the way… But Myles Watt did just enough to win the section with 46lb 8oz, giving him a total two-day point score of 3pts to finish 3rd overall in the festival… Well fished Myles. 😁!
David Mcauley finished close behind to finish 2nd in section with 44lb 1oz with another nice net of fish caught on the pole, with Mark Clow managing a 3rd place from peg 27.
A great weekend, some great fishing, great laughs and the usual banter topped off by Rosen with his big ” Ton” weight. 😁
Many thanks to all who yet again supported the match and fishery, we hope you all enjoyed it. 😁.!
