Watson qualifies for Fish O' final...again

Nathan Watson became the latest angler to qualify for the Fish O’Mania final after winning the 15th qualifier at Woodlands Lakes.

The former competition winner, who comes from Lincs, took 118lb 9oz of carp from peg 20 on Partridge by continually moving between the Method, long pole shallow, down the margins and pellet waggler.

It was enough – but only just enough – to see him win by 12oz from Leeds angler Paul McIntyre, who fished peg 16 on Skylark and finished with 117lb 13oz.

“It was great to qualify yet again and I hope I can take the title to add to my previous win as well as my Champion of Champion’s win of last year,” said Nathan.
