Tony Gilbert and Kurtis Greenwood are the latest anglers to take their place in the Maver Match This Grand Final.
Tony triumphed in Viaduct Fishery’s qualifier in Somerset, weighing in a cracking 196lb 8oz from the noted ‘Monk swim’, peg 64 on Lodge Lake. Fishing meat on the bomb and later down into the corner, his total was too good for second placed Martin Preston on 165lb 7oz.
Twenty four hours later, a field of 66 turned out at Lindholme Lakes near Doncaster, where another flier peg produced the winner, in Kurtis Greenwood (Tri-Cast Highfield) from peg 69 on Bonsai Lake. The up-and-coming young angler caught most of the fish in his 111lb 1oz bag on the bomb and pellet.
