Good Sport On The Master du Gard

Benjamin Fruit has sent in some nice pics from last week’s Master du Gard event fished in the South of France.


This was a two-day pairs competition held on the Canal Du Rhône in Saint-Gilles. The popular event was run by Team Milo 30 and saw 78 teams involved. Any method is allowed and, interestingly, each pair must fish the same peg.

“Fishing with my partner Damien Lendami, on both rounds we caught bream and carrassio on groundbait feeder tactics with worm on the hook and a lot of worm in our feeders,” Ben explained. “We finished 3rd in section on the the first round with 11.5kg after fishing a very long 60m distance. The next day we won the section with 18kg and finished 8th out of the 78 teams!”

The event was eventually won by Benjamin Billaut and Jérémie Boissière with a perfect points score.
