Matchman Final - Ash

Mon 29 August 2016

Today the qualifying 15 strong anglers battled it out to become Alders Farm Fishery’s First Matchman. Hugh Crawford was well in the lead for weeks, so took the prize for top of the board and got to pick the lake and pegs.

Ash it was, with quite evenly spaced places, but not everyone had the day they’d hoped for. It didn’t fish as predicted for some and worked like a dream for others, but that’s the name of the game.

The Top Three each took a share of the £900 prize pot and as you can see from the full results below it was a well fought battle to the end. Well done Colin (Fozzy) for taking the title!
