Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club held its final autumn competition on the Main Lake at Kingston Seymour.

Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club returned to the Main Lake on the Plantation Fishery complex in Kingston Seymour for their final autumn competition.

Although it was a dry sunny day, the cold north westerly wind signalled that winter was just around the corner and sheltered pegs with a small amount of ripple on the water would be beneficial for both the fish and the anglers over the six hours of the competition.

Mike Owens was more than delighted when he drew peg 27, a peg with shelter and past form. Mike fished the method feeder all day to catch around 12 carp giving him a total weight of 67lbs and a match win.

Four pegs away was an unhappy Dave Wride, who at the draw complained bitterly about peg 23 being put in when he drew it as it was no good.

Fishing the pole at 12 metres with soft pellet on the hook he went on to catch one carp and a nice bag of skimmer bream for 62lb 8oz which was enough for second place.

Mark Bromsgrove took the top silverfish weight by default with 40lbs from peg 28.
