Cleabarrow 24 Hour Competition results.

A late flurry of fish tightened things up as they started to feed off the surface in the morning.

The event has been a great success – thanks to the 7 anglers who took part giving it their maximum effort. Over the course of 24 sometimes gruelling hours in all weather, 40 fish were caught. I think this is a brilliant reflection on the venue to provide such quality fishing under pressure.

The catch breakdown was as follows:

24 common carp between 7-00 and 15-00

7 mirror carp between 7-13 and 15-12

5 bream between 4-04 and 5-15

4 tench between 1-15 and 4-00

Congratulation and a well deserved overall win to Kieran Benson with a total weight of 91-14. A reflection of the effort this man puts into his fishing (but don’t ever moan about your draw again!!)

Best fish went to Steve Hewkins with a lovely shaped and scaled mirror.

The overall weights were as follows:

Kieran Benson, peg 2, 91-14

Graham Nelson, peg 7, 68-04

David Drummond, peg 3, 54-01

James Irvine, peg 5, 45-09

Steve Hewkins, peg 1, 37-08

Dave Hoggarth, peg 4, 34-02

Craig Earl, peg 6, 29-04

A few lost fish here and there have made all the difference.

Many thanks to Geoff Waites and Ian Plumb for doing the prizes. If we get the interest, we’ll be doing more of this type of event going forwards.
