With talk of bagging in the margins and multiple keepnets required, expectations were high for the Tulla and District Angling Club coarse anglers for their carp challenge at Oaklands Lake. Some found the going tough with these wily carp, that know when 12 match anglers have arrived on the bank, but everyone caught and hats off to Steve Guyett on peg 1 with over 53kg to come first. Paul Ancliff, the carp master, had to let go of the cup for the first time on 3 years, though he still came in second with 32.85kg; Kevin Leahy third with 21.55kg. Big shout to Junior Fionn McKeogh who scooped the top pleasure angler prize with 12.52kg along with a new seatbox.
