Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

ENGLAND Feeder Team in­ter­na­tional Dean Bar­low got his name on the Wy­chavon Cham­pi­onship tro­phy for the sec­ond time, af­ter vic­tory in a rock-hard, 72-en­try show­down in Eve­sham Sun­day event.

Dean (Drennan Ox­ford) – son of the late An­gler’s Mail colum­nist Frank, who also won the ti­tle – drew peg 35 on the Is­bourne Mouth, and tempted four chub and two chublets on wag­gler and mag­gots with a few perch on pole for 8 lb 4 oz.

“It’s an ab­so­lute dolly peg, but I had to fish very fine to catch those wary chub with a size 22 hook on 0.09 mm hook length. It’s great to get the Bar­low name on the tro­phy three times,” said Dean, who fin­ished fifth in the pre­vi­ous day’s Dy­na­mite In­di­vid­ual Cham­pi­onship with 5 lb 4 oz… in­clud­ing a hemp-tempted

2 lb chub!

On a day which saw 21 an­glers fail to trou­ble the scales, Dean’s clos­est ri­val with 7 lb 14 oz of roach to long pole and hemp from peg 16 was Lee Ed­wards (Daiwa Dork­ing). Rob Woot­ton (Dy­na­mite Baits) was third with 6 lb 5 oz at peg 73.
