Preston Innovations ace Lee Kerry has won the £1,000 Halkon Hunt anniversary match at Doncaster’s Hayfield Lakes, with a 36lb 15oz net of silver fish. With his Barnsley team mates Andy Geldart and James Dent taking second and third place, all three of the framing places were filled by anglers under the age of thirty!
Lee commented: “I am delighted to have won this match, as targeting silvers on bloodworm is a method that I love- and Sandra and Alan are good friends, so picking up first prize has a lot of sentimental value.
I had a good draw on Adams Lake, and enjoyed a great days fishing catching quality roach, skimmers and carrassio on bunches of bloodworm long, along with plenty of quality fish on casters short. When the scales arrived, I was delighted to weigh in 36lb 15oz, as I didn’t think that I had as much as that!
My thanks go out to Sandra, for organising such a great match, and the sponsors Gore Tex, for putting up the money.
