Two match anglers win £24,000

A pair of UK match anglers have won the equivalent of £24,000 for just two weekends’ carp fishing in northern France.

The two pals beat off competition from anglers from all over continental Europe to bag themselves a brand new Peugeot car each.

They used the simplest of commercial carp fishing tactics – luncheon meat on the pole – to secure victory in the pairs event.

Incredibly, it is the second time in 12 months that the friends have won a pair of brand new cars in competitions over the channel!
