Match result shock at Tunnel Barn

They say there is nothing like local knowledge when it comes to fishing a big event but a trio of Welsh anglers blew that theory of out of the water when the dominated the frame during the latest event at Warwickshire's Tunnel Barn Farm.

With 62 anglers travelling from all over the land to practice for the eagerly awaited Van Den Eynde Supercup final, the locals were expecting to clean-up against the novices but there was shock at the weigh in when Cwmbran Angling Nobblers ace Rob Wiltshire took victory with 157lb 5oz of pellet tamed carp and F1s from peg 23 on New Pool.

Second and third place also fell to members of the same team, with Bob Giles taking 152lb 10oz and Phil Weaver recording 149lb 8oz.
