Super silverfish sport at Moorlands Farm

Top commercial fishery Moorlands Farm may be noted for its stocks of carp but it is silverfish which are making the headlines at the moment as anglers have started targeting them in matches.

Shakespeare rod Paul Bick finished second on the Hartlebury venue’s Boxing Day open with 40lb 2oz of roach, fishing caster on the short pole from its noted Meadow pool to take roach to 6oz. Local ace Neville Groves also got in on the silverfish action, netting 37lb 2oz of roach and perch but the party was spoilt by Sid Julian who won with 42lb 12oz of bomb caught carp.
