CLEVEDON Freshwater Angling Club held a match on their home water, Paddock Lake at the Acorn Fishery Kingston Seymour.

The lake was shared with a visiting club from Bristol which meant most of the pegs were taken. Anglers with a bit more room than others were likely to benefit and that’s exactly what happened.

Mike Owens fishes the venue on a regular basis and made no mistake when he drew peg six, he had the shortest walk and plenty of room as well as a bridge for a feature. Mike fished soft pellet on the long pole and fed micro pellet for a match winning 78lb 14oz of carp to 5lb.

Second place went to Lance Tucker on peg 21, which also had a bridge as a feature and fished a similar method to the winner to catch 10lb of silver fish and 54lb of carp.

Nick Harvey had plenty of room on island peg one and used a variety of baits to catch carp on the pole totalling 36lb. Top silver fish weight went to match secretary Adie Baker with 18lb 2oz.
