Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club member Mark Walsh took full advantage of a favoured peg to win the latest match.

CLEVEDON Freshwater Angling Club held their Christmas match on Paddock Lake, Acorn Fisheries in Kingston Seymour.

The match attracted a strong field of 32 anglers, who were all guaranteed a prize in the form of some festive cheer. After a hearty breakfast at the on-site café, competitors got their heads down over the five-hour period.

Venue expert Mark Walsh took full advantage off a favoured peg next to a bridge. Feeding micro pellet sparingly in a number of areas, he used soft 4mm pellet as hook bait for a respectable 30lb 9oz of small carp which was enough for first place.

At the other end of the lake, match secretary Adie Baker had a frustrating day losing some big fish, but still managed to net enough for 23lb 5oz and second place. Not far behind was Andy Hembrow with 22lb 6oz.
