Four ad­join­ing pegs pro­duce the top weights

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

THE wind had been hack­ing down to­wards the club house, and that meant that any­one draw­ing on the high num­bered pegs would be in with a huge chance of win­ning this Barston Lakes qual­i­fier.

That the­ory proved to be spot-on as four pegs in a row pro­duced the top weights.

De­coy Lakes man­ager John Smal­ley cap­i­talised on draw­ing peg 122 and used the pel­let wag­gler to land carp to 14lb for a 107-3-0 to­tal.

Lee Ken­drick was on peg 121 and matched his ri­val fish for fish through­out the con­test.

But even­tu­ally he came up just short with 100-4-0.

He worked with both the wag­gler and the bomb to land carp well into dou­ble fig­ures and some big F1s. Re­sult: 1 J Smal­ley, De­coy, 107-3-0; 2 L Ken­drick, Meat­bash­ers, 100-4-0; 3 S Wild­smith, Drennan Barns­ley, 89-0-0; 4 P Cooke, Millpool AC, 70-0-0; 5 L Wain­wright, Plop Rud­drop, 65-8-0.
