Gary Thorpe drew peg 28 and went to his peg knowing it was the inform peg having won the last to matches.
Starting off at 6m Gary caught steady from the off and was soon in a commanding lead from the rest of the field.
Trevor Price on peg 30 was determined not to let Gary have it all his own way and put in 2 pints of maggots and two bags of micro from the off ( that’s someone who is confident he has it right) after two hours with Gary on 30 fish and Trev on 8 it looked like the tactic had backfired.
Then the peg came to life Trev catching 10 fish in as many minuets the battle was on between these two venue regulars, with Gary admitting Trev was catching 8 to his 1 it looked like the venue record holder was going to put this years biggest weight to date on the scales.
Then disaster struck an act of god stopped Trev catching ( more like sabotage:)) and Gary seized the chance to forge ahead.
Terry Lancaster was leading the field with 179lb until the scales arrived with Gary who promptly stormed into the lead with 240lb the talk was could Trev take second spot he was admitting to 211 lb 80z and with Trev being very accurate with his estimations
it looked like being the old one two for the got bait pair when his fished were weighed Trev had 212lb
So Gary took the honours and another win under his belt going into his fisho round next week
Good luck mate
