Steve Ringer breaks venue record with 87.320 kg in the AT & CRT Stillwater Championship


Before the start of the latest Angling Trust & Canal & River Trust Stillwater Championship qualifier held at Blythe Waters on Saturday 26th July 2014 the 29 competitors were very apprehensive as to how the venue would fish. It was a hot, cloudless day with no breeze and temperatures were set to soar to 31 degrees. All these fears proved to be groundless as results showed this to be the most productive match of the series.

Steve Ringer wins latest Angling Trust Canal & River Trust Stillwater Championship qualifierThe winner fishing peg 8 on Bridge pool was the recently crowned World Individual Feeder Champion Steve Ringer who broke the venue record with a total of 87.320 kg. Steve caught a total of 27 carp.  18 competitors fished pellet shallow on the long pole and nine fished in the margins on pellet and worm.

Second place went to Barry Bush who has had very consistent results this season including a second place in one of the Fish ‘O’ Mania qualifiers. Barry fished on peg 4 on Willows lake where he also caught carp shallow and in the margins for a total of 50.680 kg.

Third place went to Sean Huggins fishing peg 6 on Willow pool. Sean struggled to catch shallow as the bright sunlight made spotting fish difficult, however, he built up his margin swim to catch 18 carp for a weight of 50.080 kgs just 600 grams off a qualifying place which eluded him when he lost a carp in the dying seconds of the match.
