ST HELENS AA PRESTON INNOVATIONS/ SONUBAITS THREE-DAY FESTIVAL (FRI-SUN)
Carr Mill Dam (64 pegs)
Backed by Preston Innovations and Sonubaits to the tune of £2,000 of tackle and bait, there was also over £8,500 of cash to fish for over the three days. Local rod Sean Fletcher bagged the bulk of it, winning with four points, one in front of Ged Rigby who had to settle for second. Day one saw Sean on peg 106 where he fished Method feeder with maggot and pellet to weigh in 25-12-0 of bream and skimmers for a section win and second in the match. Day two produced second in section with 14-12-0 of skimmers on the Method from peg 6. On the final day he drew peg 88 and bagged 20-12-0 of skimmers on the Method fished at 55m for a section win and, more importantly, the festival!
