Mark Bromsgrove was the winner of Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club’s Christmas Fayre competition at Kingston Seymour.

Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club held their Christmas Fayre competition on the prolific Paddock Lake Acorn Fisheries at Kingston Seymour.

Despite a match being fished on the lake the previous day, the resident carp were happy to feed in the blustery but mild conditions.

Venue regular Mark Bromsgrove did not fancy his chances when he drew peg 15 down the left-hand straight, but managed to fish the long pole across to the far bank margins despite the wind using soft 4mm pellet on the hook and feeding micros to catch steady throughout the five hours or a match winning 111lbs of carp.

Match secretary Adie Baker was on peg one and was fishless for the first hour but went on to catch 78lb of carp on soft pellet down his right-hand margin which was enough for second place. Rod Duffery filled third place with 64lb of carp from peg 21.

The next match is on December 16 at Plantation Lakes, to book in phone Adie on 07988 736722.
