Top 12 Final Sunday 7th October 2018
Yesterday's Top 12 club match final,fished at Morchard Road fishery, was a hard one for most following a severe drop in temperature and hard frost. However, a great day was had by all, particularly those smiling faces pictured above who took top honours.
Winner on the day, from a peg on the left hand bank, was Bruce Hunt with 19.670kg. Bruce caught all of his 21 carp on an 11m pole using paste and a size 12 hook fished over micro pellets. This completes the double for Bruce having already won this year's club match series in good style. Congratulations Bruce on a great season !
Runner up on the day, from the adjacent peg to Bruce, was Dom Garnett with 16.640kg. Dominic managed 2 small carp on the pole but caught a further 17 carp on the method feeder alternating corn, pellet and worm as hookbait . This also concludes a great season for Dominic having finished 3rd overall in the club match series. Well done Dominic !
In 3rd place and just one fish behind Dominic was Elliot Fay with 16.140kg. Elliot, again pegged on the left hand bank, caught 7 carp down the edge using corn over micro pellet. When the bites ceased he switched to the method feeder and using 6mm pellet as hook bait caught a further 9 carp. Well done Elliot !
The winning quartet was completed by Steve Manley who weighed in with 13.060kg. Steve drew a peg on the right hand end of the road side bank and fished a method feeder to the island using 6mm pellet over micro pellets. He managed a couple of carp on the pole but the main part of his 14 carp catch came on the method. Well done Steve !
The prize-giving followed with cash prizes for the top six and tackle prizes for the remainder so everyone was a winner on the day. A special thanks, once again, goes to Exeter Angling Centre and Culm Valley Angling for their sponsorship and donation of prizes. Well done also to the 12 qualifiers yesterday who managed to get to the final and for helping to make what was yet another successful finale.
