Anglers Mail - - Front Page -

A FI­NAL day catch of 27 lb 4 oz boosted Sal­ford, Manch­ester, ’tip ace Gareth Lam­bert to over­all vic­tory in the four-day Loch Ken au­tumn fes­ti­val at the South West Scot­land venue.

“I drew peg 9 on the birches length and tar­geted 18 ft of depth at

50-55 m, land­ing 27 skim­mers for third on the day,” said Gareth. “Colin Duck­ett beat me by 4 oz next peg, with roach on the whip, and Jimmy Messer won with a 30 lb of whip roach weight off the shale bank. But I won over­all with an 87 lb 4 oz to­tal, and

I’m buzzing. It’s taken me ten years to fi­nally win a Ken fes­ti­val,” he added. Gareth Lam­bert’s fi­nal day Loch Ken catch of skim­mers.

Changes are afoot for 2018 on the Avon at Eve­sham.
