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.
