Blur­ton in trio of canal wins

Angling Times (UK) - - MATCH NEWS -

WIN­NING on the North West open canal cir­cuit is no easy feat, given the high stan­dard of the an­glers and some tough venues.

So Carl Blur­ton’s achieve­ment in win­ning three well-at­tended Wi­gan DAA opens on the Leeds-Liver­pool Canal is es­pe­cially note­wor­thy.

The Wi­gan MG man warmed up for the open­ing round of the Angling Trust Wi­gan League by top­ping Satur­day’s 41-peg­ger at Par­bold with a hard-earned 4-0-12, seven days after tak­ing 9-6-0 at Heaton Bridge.

This time Carl caught more than 120 small roach on pole and bread­punch from his peg near the flats, leav­ing Kevin Garry in sec­ond on 3-12-4.
