Dudsbury lands £1,000 Fisho Maniac glory

The latest big money event at Devon’s Stafford Moor went right to the wire but it was Neil Dudsbury who eventually got the nod and recorded 97lb 14oz to win the £1,000 top prize.

After making the long journey from his Derbyshire home to compete in the annual Fisho Maniac match, he drew peg 13 on Tanners and alternated between the bomb and waggler up in the water to keep carp to 8lb coming to the net.

Lee Jan was left to rue a couple of lost fish and fell agonisingly short of taking the glory with his 96lb 14oz haul taken from peg 16.
