AT & CRT Stillwater Championship Final 2016
Warm and blustery conditions greeted the 48 finalists to the usually prolific Boddington Reservoir for the AT/CRT Stillwater Championship Final. With a strong wind blowing down the Reservoir and into the dam wall the low numbered pegs were the favoured area to draw in, but it wasn’t until the very last peg to be drawn that end Peg 2 ended up in the hand of renowned angler and Fish O Mania semi-finalist Barry Bush (Birkenhead).
Most of the field thought the game was up there
and then and so it proved with Barry recording an emphatic win with over
80Kgs, taking home a nice fat cheque for £1672 and the coveted title of
AT/CRT Stillwater Champion 2016. Barry caught slowly from the off
taking 6 carp in the first 90 minutes but sport improved dramatically in
the latter stages of the match when he caught 10 carp in the hour
giving him a total of 24 carp to 12lb, well in front of everyone else.
Flouro wafters fished on the bomb at 30 metres over a bed of constantly fed 10mm pellets did the business. Paul Keal (Towcester) then led a tight chasing pack and took home the runners up cheque of £1254, taking 13 carp to 13lb, fishing wafters and method feeder at range for 47.300Kg from peg 99. A string of 42Kg weights followed with Andrew (Snowy) Ashington (Ringer Baits) taking 12 carp to 12lb from the other end peg 103, catching on the method and bomb for 42.980Kg, just edging out Steve Ringer (Daiwa) who took 42.840Kg from peg 87. Despite the fairly impressive framing weights the venue fished disappointingly below par with many anglers struggling for bites with the carp seemingly blown across the lake to the far side.
The Angling Trust would to like thank the members of the Canal and Rivers Trust Angling Team for doing all the groundwork and co-organising the competition.
