YOUNG GUN MATT IN SMOKING FORM TO TAKE POLE CHAMPS
Double-figure carp pave way to victory
MAVER BRITISH POLE CHAMPS FINAL Hayfield Lakes (31 pegs)
THE cream of British match fishing lined up for this event, and it was Matt Godfrey who took the honours thanks to a 134-5-0 catch.
Drawn on peg 33 on Little Adams, the Drennan Barnsley rod started short on hard pellet but managed to get the majority of his bites on the deck at 14.5m, putting carp to double figures into his nets.
MAP and Bag’em Matchbaits man Jamie Hughes was best of the rest.
He succeeded in putting together 123-8-0 on hard pellet fished short from peg 23 on the same lake. Result: 1 M Godfrey, Drennan Barnsley, 134-5-0; 2 J Hughes, MAP/Bag’em Matchbaits, 123-8-0; 3 A Power, Preston Innovations, 109-8-0; 4 L Bennett, West Malling Angling, 103-12-0; 5 J Whincup, Frenzee, 92-8-0; 6 F Gianocelli, Preston Innovations, 88-0-0.
