All 60 pegs sold out for the popular Moorlands farm qualifier. High Meadow, Moors, Bank Pool & Meadow were all divided into 20 peg zones.

Second overall was Kioran Rich from peg 5 on the Meadow Pool.
Kioran fished a small cage feeder with waffter picking up some large carp to weigh in 65-10-0. Kioran was unlucky not to qualify but was drawn in the same zone as the overall winner.

Third in the frame was Steve Hanrahan from peg 3 on High Meadow.
Steve fished a method with corn hook baits landing a fine 53-10-0 of carp and F1’s and further booking his place in the March Grand Final.
