STORMING WIN IN FIVE-DAY FES­TI­VAL

Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

THERE were some huge weights taken dur­ing a mem­o­rable week at the com­plex, and at the end of the tour­na­ment it was Mark Lidgard who scooped glory and the £1,000 cash prize.

The venue reg­u­lar man­aged to win his sec­tion three times and topped those vic­to­ries up with a sec­ond and third in zone to put to­gether an un­touch­able score of eight points.

Lots of big carp had shown dur­ing the five-day event, but Mark made sure of the win by putting on an as­ton­ish­ing dis­play of sil­ver­fish bag­ging, net­ting 131-1-0 of mainly cru­cians from Is­lands Pond to win his sec­tion by less than 1lb!

Sec­ond over­all was Keith Eas­ton, who fin­ished on nine points. Chris Mack fin­ished just shy of the fram­ing places on 11 points.
