Anglers at Shiplate Farm endured tough conditions for the latest open match.

TEN anglers fished an open match on the Main Lake at Shiplate Fisheries through hail, heavy rain and strong winds, which later gave way briefly to somewhat calmer and drier conditions.

Phil Harding fished the method feeder with ground bait and micro pellet using 8m pellet for hook bait and managed to bag 70lb 12oz from peg 15 to win the match.

Results: Phil Harding (peg 15) 70lb 12oz; Tim Lewis (peg 1) 47lb 10oz; Tom Light (peg 7) 45lb 15oz. Silvers went to Gordon Jones (peg 13) 12lb 12oz.
