Adie Baker won Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club’s second competition of the year at Kingston Seymour.

Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club returned to Plantations Fishery, Kingston Seymour, and fished the Main Lake for their second competition of the year.

It was a bitterly cold day and temperatures did not increase during the match due to a north east wind.

Match secretary Adie Baker drew peg eight which was where the winner came from in the previous match and as he was next door on peg seven at the time he knew what tactics to deploy.

Adie fished the long pole and straight lead to net some big carp backed up with skimmer bream taken on soft and hard pellets for a match winning 37lbs 2ozs.Second was postman Paul Faires from peg 7 with 27lbs 12ozs. Paul only had one carp, the rest of his catch was made up of roach and skimmer bream, caught on natural baits in conjunction with the waggler and pole.

Andy Deveraux on peg four came third with 22lbs 6ozs, made up of three carp and some silver fish.
