Maver Match This de­liv­ered the goods

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

HOW re­fresh­ing was it to see the fi­nal of a big-money match where lots of fish were caught?

Fish O’Ma­nia fi­nals in re­cent years have been peggy af­fairs, with fairly mod­est catches win­ning the ti­tle, but the Maver Match This fi­nal at Hay­field Lakes cer­tainly over­turned that trend!

Win­ner Jon Whin­cup had 233lb and I no­ticed that the an­gler that came third-from-last out of the 24 fi­nal­ists man­aged over 50lb.

This just goes to show that care­ful peg­ging, venue se­lec­tion and stock­ing can lead to a great fi­nal that holds the in­ter­est of both com­peti­tors and spec­ta­tors. Ju­lian New­some, Pon­te­fract
