Perry Fairclough with his match winning 32-15-0 catch
9th April 2017
Perry Fairclough continued his excellent run of form by winning the penultimate match of the series at a hot and sunny Greenfields fishery on Sunday. In the last four matches Perry has finished fourth, third, second and first and is now second in the league table, a superb run. In second place in the match was Alan Bright with 27-9-0 of carp and third was Bill Parker with 12-7-0. The hot and sunny conditions did not seem to be conducive to the carp feeding on the day and many were seen cruising on the surface but not interested in feeding. Several anglers tried ‘mugging’ tactics but as far as I’m aware not one carp was caught in this way. Section winner Doug Read finished fourth and Mike Smith won the specimen. Interestingly the top three weights came from three different lakes.
1 – Perry Fairclough – 32-15-0
2 – Alan Bright – 27-9-0
3 – Bill Parker – 12-7-0
Specimen: Mike Smith – Carp – 5-15-0
