Sedges, 16 August 2009 (9 pegs)


View Larger Map


A combination of inspired pegging and a long overdue return to form enabled Sedges venue expert Darren North to cruise to an easy victory.
Drawn at unfancied peg 3, Darren fished the pellet waggler to the aereator and shallow on the pole with pellet and hardly any feed to weigh in 90lbs 6oz of carp to over 12lbs despite at one point breaking his landing net and having to interrupt the owners' Sunday lunch for a replacement!
Popular club member Darren even included 8lbs of skimmers in his total caught on the pole just a few inches deep.
Darren's traveling partner for the day, Bob Warren, on another unfancied draw and his "jinx peg", corner peg 20 managed second place with 50lbs 12oz which included 17lbs of skimmers.
Third on the day was Match Secretary and recent winner of the prestigious Psv Knockout Cup, Steve Burgess.
Steve drew Golden peg 18 and fished 8mm pellet shallow and on the deck for 45lbs 10oz.
Top silvers went to carp-avoider Dave "the worm" Tippett with a very impressive 38lbs from peg 9.
