Korda were here filming the next series of THE BIG FISH OFF so the match was rearranged to allow TV cameras to do there thing, but this didn’t phase Luke as he lands 16 carp unto 10lb…
Luke Fone, Jolly Sailers-Rib Valley Angling, peg 12, 98-0-0
So with a dozen people from ITV and telly land we had a star studded event with Ali Hamidi, Dean Macey, Mark Bright and DJ Spoony filming we compressed the match onto the remaining banks and it was the regular Wednesday stars that sorted all the fish out and with the pole line quiet for Luke it was a no brainer hard pellet and bomb chuck to the island and then catapulting hard 8mm pellets at the island, a great day tip fishing with 16 carp from 3lb to 10lb, another close match and the lake hosting the new series was just a bonus, great to meet Ali and the team, great day.
- Ken Farrell, Lake John Fishery, peg 10, 83-0-0 jnt
- Mark Parris, Lake John – Hollow Angling, peg 16, 83-0-0 jnt
- Gary McClair, Hollow Angling, peg 8, 77-0-0
- John Nippress, Lake John Fishery, peg 18, 69-12-0
- Bill Everitt, Redbridge Lakes, peg 28, 69-8-0, (It would appear that a 10lb put back carp for Bill was not included in the total tally but being a true gent this was no contested, just to say that at the scales we need to concentrate on ever angler so these problems do not occur).
