PUDDLEDOCK FARM (WEDS)
ESSEX farmer Andrew Farley wielded his legendary elasticated rod in the margins of peg 81 and left the rest fishing for second as he bagged 303-8-0 of carp to 14lb for an easy win. The Brightlingsea angler fished paste over his secret groundbait mix that has served him so well on fisheries around Essex.
Second past the post were Ross Harold and Micky Hood sharing the runner-up spot on pegs 54 and 70 with a level 134-0-0 of carp. They were taken on pellet fished at 14m and down the edge.
1 A Farley, Brightlingsea, 303-8-0; jt2 M Hood, Ockendon Bait & Tackle and R Harold, Matrix, both 134-0-0; 4 J Brooks, Ockendon Bait & Tackle, 127-2-0.
