Small roach catch earns big money chance for Colin


qualifiers Yare 2017

There were 55 anglers on the latest qualifier on the River Yare and while the weights weren’t as high as normal, it made for a very close match. The river was running quite clear and most people thought that roach would be the target for a qualifying weight.

Colin Taylor drew peg 126 at Langley and caught small roach on the pole to win the match, and a shot at the £13,000 top prize with 15-4-0.

Running him close was Rob Hewison who used the same tactics to weigh in 13-5-0 from peg 110 on Sluice Bend for second.

Rounding out the top three was Sam Merry fishing both pole and feeder to catch 12-12-0 from peg 95.

Rob Kepner (Devizes MG) weighed in 12-10-0 for fourth, ahead of Ian Smith with 12-8-0 and Richard Tomala on 12-6-0.

Our thanks to David Harrell for his continued support to the contest and a special thanks go to Andy Wilson Sutter for organising another excellent qualifier.
