Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

MA­TRIX TIDAL RIVER TRENT FES­TI­VAL (FRI-SUN) River Trent, Dun­ham, North Clifton & Laugh­ter­ton (56 pegs)

TRENT match or­gan­iser Alan Henry won the sum­mer’s big event – the Ma­trix Tidal Fes­ti­val – as he fin­ished on a per­fect three points to end up one clear of Alis­tair Ogilvie and Toby Bunting, joint sec­ond on four apiece.

Alan be­gan on peg 42 at Laugh­ter­ton, fish­ing feeder and mag­got for 9-12-0 of roach, dace, perch and a few skim­mers to win his sec­tion.

Day two put him at North Clifton peg 37, where he found 19-10-0 for a match win.

Feeder and mag­got pro­duced roach, dace, perch and a bonus 4lb bream be­fore a late switch to the wag­gler brought more dace and roach.

On the fi­nal day Alan drew

peg 3 at Dun­ham down­stream.

Feeder and mag­got was again his trusty go-to method and 13-3-0 of mainly dace and roach saw him home!

Re­sult: 1 A Henry, Shi­mano/Dy­na­mite Baits, 3pts; jt2 A Ogilvie, Sen­sas and T Bunting, Quorn, both 4; jt4 P Richard­son, Lin­coln Whisby, P Moutrey, Scun­thorpe An­gling and J Small, Lin­coln Whisby, all 5.

The top three money win­ners in a closely-fought Tidal Trent Fes­ti­val.
