An open match held at Shiplate Farm Fisheries was won by Alan Healey.

AN OPEN match on the Main Lake at Shiplate Farm Fisheries saw 22 anglers compete for first place.

Glorious sunshine and very little breeze made the day a pleasure to be out in, but the lack of cloud and an overnight chill did little to get the fish on the feed.

It was never going to be an easy match, but the luck of the draw and knowledge of the venue were the two things a lot of anglers were relying on.

Alan Healey alternated between the pole and the tip to take the match prize.
