Alders Farm produces huge winning match weight

The temperatures may be dropping but the sport remains as hot as ever at bagging haven Alders Farm and the consistent Gary Thorpe added another win to his tally by hauling out a back breaking 347-12-0 during the first round of the winter league.

After selecting to fish the Match Lake during the teams of four event, the GOT Baits ace decided to fish pole short with maggot and caster and was into carp from the off.

Sport never dipped during the five hour battle, with Gary landing fish averaging around the 3lb mark on virtually every drop.
