Hyde holds out for big chub on the Yorkshire Ouse


Yorkshire Ouse press release 2017

The twenty second RiverFest qualifier wound its way North to Linton on Ouse in Yorkshire. Forty nine anglers battled the strong winds and low clear river conditions in a fight to bag themselves one of the last qualifying spots for the final on the River Wye.

Top of the pack was Peter Hyde who drew peg 250 on the Linton Stretch. Peter braved it out on the tip and lobworm for most of the match and was rewarded with a huge 5lb chub and couple of roach for his 5lb 9oz.

Second on the day was Dan Ridley who was also on the top section of Linton. Dan amassed a very respectable 4lb 4oz in the five hours.

Third on the day and also qualifying for the final was Bob Brown. The Browning Osset Angler drew on peg 222 at Hunters Lodge and secured third by an ounce with 4lb 3oz. Coming in fourth was Jon Obank who also just nudged past the 4lb barrier with 4lb 2oz,

Final Qualifier on the day was Stuart Tate who qualified from the tricky Helperby and Brafferton section. Stuart won his zone with 3lb 4oz.

Special thanks go to Dave Miles and his team for a very well run qualifier.
