What a weekend!! The final match of five in the Middy series was fished on the Silver fish dominated Main Lake on Saturday 28th March 2009 and Silver fish were the name of the game. The match was seriously fished with at least six anglers in contention for the series prize of a Middy Shock Core XP16 16m Pole which sells at 999.99 GBSterling. Alex Murray (Team Mozella) was favoured to take it as he was also fishing with a match in hand drawing one of the few pegs where the Carp have showed from this winter and before the start everyone was thinking it was in the bag. How wrong they could be! Conditions were hard from the start with a blustery wind and an overnight frost. However, with the previous warm couple of weeks these Carp had vacated this peg and failed to show to everyone's surprise. Other anglers geared for the Silver fish from the start and many were catching one a cast right from the off. Alex kept to carp tactics hoping for some to show and, in desperation, switched to method tactics. He scrapped a couple of small Common Carp mid match before giving it all up as a lost match and eventually just made up the last places. On the far side of the lake Brian Preston geared for Silver fish only to discover that the few carp in the lake had taken up residence here and after losing several on light gear a change of tactics led him to take a few Commons and Mirrors and finished first place on the day with 37lb 8oz. Nigel Bartlett found some fantastic Silver fish and catching a fish nearly every cast weighed in an all Silver fish bag of Roach and Bream for 35lb 1oz. Ian Brouncey brought up 3rd place with Silver fish again for 30lb. Section winners, again with all Silver fish bags, were Ian Paulley and Casey Rodber. Overall results for the series led to a victory for Nigel Bartlett (31 pts) who took the series prize which was gratefully donated by Middy Tackle. Ian Brouncey came 2nd with 29pts, Alex Murray 3rd with 27pts, Ian Paulley 4th with 25pts and Brian Preston 5th with 24pts. Several anglers at the end of the day remarked how nice that over five matches the same person never won more than once, which is a pleasant change in many match angling circles these days and one the Revels Fishery management were pleased to see!
