THE an­nual Chew Val­ley Pike Cham­pi­onships was won with just three small fish, to­talling 29 lb.

Win­ner David El­liott said: “I came down from Manch­ester to en­joy a day’s fish­ing, and nor­mally my weight would have come nowhere near to win­ning, but it was a bit of a gru­eller, with many peo­ple blank­ing, and a pike of 16 lb was the big­gest fish.

“Chew is a fan­tas­tic place.

The staff are friendly, and there’s al­ways a great bunch of pikers. I love the laughs and the ban­ter. Thank you, Chew!” ex­claimed the car paint sprayer, who used sar­dines to catch fish of 12 lb, 11 lb and 6 lb.

David El­liott with a 22 lb oz Chew pike caught on sar­dine at the be­gin­ning of Oc­to­ber.

David col­lects the Chew Val­ley Pike Cham­pi­onships tro­phy from fish­ery man­agerJohn Har­ris.
