Trio Calder 2018

The 60 competitors in this year’s first round qualifier on the River Calder in Mirfield were faced with a tricky river, that was over a foot below seasonal level and running clear.

Chub, roach, and dace were the target species and leading the pack was Nicholas Crooks who caught 13-4-0 of roach on pole and waggler from peg A4 above the weir. This made him the first angler of the series to secure a place in the big money November final.

Joining Nicholas in the final are Ian Courtney who won B zone with 10-15-0 of chub and Andy Dixon came out on top in C zone with 12-2-0 of chub.


1. Nicholas Crooks 13-4-0

2. Paul Johnson 12-3-0

3. Andy Dixon 12-2-0

4. Tony Marshall 11-13-0

5. Matt Godfrey 11-11-0
