KING OF CLUBS FES­TI­VAL 2016 Loughs Gowna & Oughter (81 pegs)

DE­VIZES man Kevin Rowles has en­joyed another prof­itable au­tumn in Ire­land with a win in the an­nual pres­ti­gious King of Clubs com­pe­ti­tion.

The for­mer Fish O’Ma­nia cham­pion posted 63-280 over the five days, tak­ing hy­brids and roach with the odd skim­mer from both venues. The pole played more of a part as the days passed, with many fish be­ing caught at short range on mag­got and caster over ground­bait.

It was tight, though, with Dutch an­gler Leo Coote tak­ing sec­ond after fin­ish­ing less than 500g be­hind with 62-790. Over­all re­sult: 1 K Rowles, De­vizes, 63-280; 2 L Coote, Hol­land, 62-790; 3 G Charles, Doncaster, 60-780; 4 I Field­house, Tackle 2U, 57-490; 5 S God­frey, Peter­bor­ough, 56-270; 6 J Rodgers, Ted Carter Pre­ston, 56-120.
