An­gling Trust/Canal & River Trust Still­wa­ter Cham­pi­onship Fi­nal Bod­ding­ton Reservoir (48 pegs)

IN WARM and blus­tery con­di­tions, it was Barry Bush who took the sil­ver­ware and walked away over £1,600 richer.

The Birken­head an­gler was the last to draw and ended up on fan­cied peg 2. With the wind hack­ing down that end, it was clear the fish would be sat in the area. He got off to a steady start by tak­ing six qual­ity carp in the first hour and a half.

Sport then stepped up a notch and, by the end of the ses­sion, he had landed 24 fish to 12lb for an 80-360 to­tal.

Flu­oro wafters fished on the bomb around 30yds out did the busi­ness, eas­ily beat­ing Paul Keal into sec­ond place with 47-300 from peg 99.

Re­sult: 1 B Bush, Birken­head, 80-360; 2 P Keal, Towces­ter, 47-300; 3 A Ash­ing­ton, Ringer Baits, 42-980; 4 S Ringer, Daiwa/Guru, 42-840; 5 P Walker, 42-680; 6 P Knap­man, 42-160.

Six qual­ity carp in 90 min­utes got him off to a steady start

That’ll do nicely! Barry Bush proudly holds the win­ner’s cheque.
