Drennan Silverfish League – Round 6

Team England’s Sean Ashby is leading the Drennan Silverfish League at Rycroft Fisheries at the halfway stage.


The former World Champ and Sensas backed star has amassed 92lb 3oz of fish over six matches and has a 6lb lead over his nearest challenger.

Despite very cold conditions the fish still fed quite well for Round 6. Nathan Hughes had a day off from running his fishing tackle empire and managed to win the match with 19lb 5oz.  He was drawn on peg 10 on the Carp Lake and caught skimmers at 13 metres with groundbait and dead maggots, quality roach to a pound on loose fed caster closer in and four good perch down the edge on chopped worm and casters.

Runner-up on the same lake from peg 16 was Steve Winter. He stuck to his long pole lines with groundbait and dead maggots for 16lb 4oz of skimmers. Making it a family affair and just two pegs from the winner was Nathan’s son Cameron, who was 3rd with a 15lb 12oz mixed bag.
