JASON IS 'KING' OF BODDINGTON

30.07.19

Boddington Classic Final 2019

Wet and overcast conditions greeted the 40 finalists to this year’s Boddington Classic Final, however the fish responded well to the cooler conditions and fed well. The favoured beach area did produce some good weights as anticipated, but it was peg 84 that threw up the winner.

Jake King (Trabucco/Bag Em Baits) fished an excellent match on the bomb and pellet, to take 27 carp to 6kg and secure the title of 'Boddington Classic Champion 2019' and a cheque for £1682 with a superb weight of 112.775kg.

Tony Johnson (Deeping St James) drew peg 97 on the beach and just fell short with 26 carp to 7kg caught on wafters and hybrid feeder for 96.200kg. Close by at peg 93 was Richard Edmunds (Free Spirit) who also caught 26 carp on wafter and method fished at long range for 90.400kg.

The Angling Trust would like to thank the Canal & Rivers Trust and their team at Boddington Reservoir for co-organising the competition and special thanks to Dick & Sheila Pilkinton for almost single handedly running the competitions in recent years and wish them a happy retirement in the near future.

Next year’s event will extend to five qualifiers to keep up with demand, but will be reduced to 48 pegs with 8 people qualifying through from each round.

Tickets will go on sale later in the year through the booking site, so watch this space and the Facebook page for updates.
