After the penultimate round being cancelled due to bad weather, the conditions finally improved for the final round of the league.
League leader, and England International, Cameron Hughes endured a difficult day frustratingly catching carp on peg 9 of Donno Lake. But, despite being interrupted by carp for most of the match he still managed to put together 8lb of silvers which were just enough to keep him in front of his nearest challenger Lee Bickerton who put in a spirited challenge catching 25lb of skimmers and roach for third on the day.
Cameron Hughes was crowned 2018 Drennan Silverfish League champion, but he wasn’t the only family member to do well. His dad Nathan also won the match on the day from peg 8 of the New Canal fishing maggots across for 34lb 3oz of tench, ide, skimmers and roach.
Runner-up, Andy Beesley who was also on the new canal where he landed nineteen fish (mostly tench) for 26lb 6oz.
Despite the weather, this has been a fiercely contested league and has attracted former World and European Champions as well as England internationals, plus a strong field of quality anglers.
“The organisers like to be fair and spread the prizes and prize money between the top twelve anglers. I would like to thank Drennan International, Rycroft fisheries and the Old Crown for there hospitality.”
