The big money event, the first of its kind in Scotland hosted 16 qualifying rounds culminating in a winners take all ‘fish off’ at Springwater fishery near Ayr.
David used short range pole tactics in very windy conditions, with chopped worm, maggot and some additives luring the tench to his peg. Leading by the second hour a few lost fish still didn’t dent his chances although a late big tench for Mark Lyons did deny David of the big fish prize of £225.
In keeping with any big money win David ‘took the plunge’. Well done David.
