Rod Wotton came out on top against Andy Hembrow in a head-to-head battle on the main lake at Kingston Seymour.

ROD Wotton and Andy Hembrow enjoyed a head-to-head battle during the latest Clevedon Freshwater Angling Club competition held on the main lake of the Plantations complex at Kingston Seymour.

Both of them were pegged opposite each other and both fished the same method, which was the pole at 14 metres with pellet on the hook and spraying regular helpings of pellet to attract quality carp throughout the five and a half hour match.

Rod took an early lead in the first couple of hours, but Andy was soon catching up and at the end there was only a couple of fish between them.

Rod weighed in 138lb 4oz and Andy put 133lb 14oz on the scales. Their nearest competitor was Kev Perry with 56lb 7oz. After that, the weights dropped dramatically with the majority of anglers struggling.

Glenn Calvert won the silver fish prize with a mixed bag for 16lb 4oz, caught on chopped worm.

Results: Rod Wotton 138lb 4oz; Andy Hembrow 133lb 14oz; Kev Perry 56lb 4oz. Silvers: Glenn Calvert 16lb 1oz.
