Andy Oldham bags Hallcroft bonus

Top match angler Andy Oldham had plenty to smile about after the latest match at Nottinghamshire's Hallcroft Fishery after he took top spot and also a £300 golden peg bonus.

The Halkon Hunt ace managed to catch carp on the 13m line in the early stages from peg 22 on Moat Pool Outer but it was a switch to the shallow waggler later in the event that helped him attract bigger stamp fish and a total of 100lb 9oz.

Silverfish played a major part in Paul McIntyre’s second place haul with the Bait-Tech man netting 50lb 12oz of skimmers on pole and pellet.
