Golden Rod Feeder Championship Qualifier No 10, Larford Lakes, Saturday 30th December 2023

A complete sell out, with reserves turning out to pick up possible tickets on the day. Sadly for the reserves, most ticket holders turned up as clearly there was a great demand to fish the Larford qualifier.

Conditions were difficult, substantial rain fall had filled all the lakes to capacity and despite our best efforts, running off levels was and also remains difficult.

Winner today and progressing to the final was George Parker who drew peg 13 on the Match Lake. George fished a method feeder tight to the point of the island with waffter hook baits landing 111-9-0 of carp and F1’s.

Second on the day and unlucky not to quality was Dave Berry who drew Arena peg 10.
Dave fished a hybrid feeder with waffters netting 84-5-0 of carp and F1’s.

Third on the day was Alex Bones who drew peg 15 on the Match Lake.
Alex fished the hybrid feeder with waffters weighing in 82-9-0 of quality carp and F1’s.

Fourth to frame was Andy Power from peg 30 on the Match Lake.
Andy goes through to the Final on his first attempt with 76-4-0, all caught on a small feeder with punched bread hook bait.

Fifth in the match was Charlie Simpson from peg 16 on the Match Lake with 69-6-0.
Charlie caught all his fish on a hybrid feeder fished tight down his edges on waffters.
