Terrific Tunnel Barn Farm

A great day was had yesterday for Round 1 of the Drennan Knockout Cup at Tunnel Barn Farm in Warwickshire.


There were 146 anglers lining the banks and it was Dale Shepherd who came out on top with a match-winning 129lb 15oz. The commercial fishery specialist used chopped worm tactics for a great weight of carp and F1s from peg 33 on House Pool. That earned him a cool £1,300 jackpot and a well-earned place in Round 2.

The top 10 anglers all had over 100lb of fish and you needed 67lb to make the top 60 qualifying weights. Thanks to Tunnel Barn Farm for hosting the event. Round 2 will be on the New Junction Canal in South Yorkshire. For the full story, check out Match Fishing magazine.
