Triple figure ide catch wins Blundells open

An increase in temperatures sent the silverfish shoals into a frenzy during the latest event at Cheshire’s Blundells Fishery, with eventual winner Andy Bennett placing a carp free 110lb 14oz bag on the scales.

After choosing peg 43 on Ash Pool in the midweek rover competition, the Fox Match ace decided to fish maggot and caster both on the deck and up in the water for the resident ide and managed to land fish at regular intervals, with the biggest specimens nudging the 3lb mark.

Runner up Stuart Taylor was just short of breaking the triple figure barrier with his 92lb 15oz mixed catch.
