Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club’s press officer Ivan Currie emerged the winner of the Christmas Fare competition.

Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club had a good turnout for their Christmas Fare competition with 30 anglers lining the bank of Paddock Lake on the Acorn Fisheries complex in Kingston Seymour.

A competition on the lake the previous day and a thin layer of ice on the water suggested the fishing would be difficult. The ice soon melted due to a rise in temperature and some light rain.

Club press officer Ivan Currie drew corner peg six adjacent to the access road and after receiving some advice from a teammate, set about fishing 6mm punched bread at various depths with the long pole in front of the bridge to net 15 carp over the six-hour period for a matching wining weight of 71lb 4ozs.

Not far away on peg two was match secretary Adie Baker who fished the same method for 66lb 15ozs. Next door on peg one was Keith May who had 60lb 10ozs for third place.

Every angler managed to catch fish and everyone went home with a prize. The club would like to thank the Bridge Inn at Yatton for their hospitality before and after the match, Worle Butchers who provided the meat hampers, Ecolab and Reel Fun for their sponsorship.

A remember to all members, the club’s annual meeting is on the January 4 at the Blue Flame, Nailsea Moor.
