Paul wins at Shiplate

Paul Chapman finished top in the latest match held at Shiplate Farm Fisheries.

WITH a mainly dry day and a light winds, conditions were chilly but quite favourable for the Fry’s match on the two side lakes, Hawthorns and Westpool (30 pegs) at Shiplate Farm Fisheries.

Good bags of carp were steady and silvers were also feeding, maggot being the favoured bait by most anglers. The matches were close on both lakes with only a few pounds difference in the top places of each lake.

Paul Chapman fished maggot down the track and to the far bank to win the match on the Westpool, just beating Pete Sivell, who took second place.

Dave Evans just managed to pull ahead of Merv Sivell to take the first place on the Hawthorns.
