Ian Heaps bags Holgan Farm festival win

Former England international Ian Heaps proved he has lost none of his class when he stormed to victory during the latest festival at Holgan Farm.

The fishery boss used a variety of tactics during the three day extravaganza at his own complex in Pembrokeshire and recorded three section wins and a 284lb 2oz total. He also took the top individual weight of the tournament with his 169lb carp haul from the Match Lake.

Leeds angler Tim Peters secured second place with six points while Swansea’s Neil Daniels was just a single mark behind in third.
