Match winner Mike Smith with one of the bream that helped him take top spot on the day
20th August 2017
The picturesque Goldsworth Park was the venue for the fourth round of the series but despite its lovely surroundings the fishing once again turned out to be very difficult indeed. Mike Smith took the honours with 18-2-0 which comprised of bream, skimmers and a bonus 5-8-0 mirror carp. Perry Fairclough claimed second place with 17-1-0 and Ryan Fairclough was third with 14-12-0. Feeder tactics and patience were the order of the day with all the top weights falling to this method. It didn’t work for all who tried it though as sadly there were some blanks in the field of twenty two anglers. Roy Cadden and Fred Fairman both won their sections and Ryan Fairclough won the specimen on the day with a 3-15-0 bream. WhatsApp guru Doug Read also recorded a 1-13- 0 tench for the current specimen list.
1 – Mike Smith – 18-2-0
2 – Perry Fairclough – 17-10-0
3 – Ryan Fairclough – 14-12-0
Ryan Fairclough – Bream – 3-15-0
