CARP-R-US fished their Memorial Cup match at El Bosquet near Elche on September 22.

“This year the Cup holds a special place in the hearts of the club, as sadly two of our longest-standing members, Ann Fowles and Roy Buttress, both passed away,” said the club’s secretary Steve Fell.

“Weather forecasts in the days leading up to the match predicted that there would be rain and possibly storms at some stage during the day.  As it turned out the match was fished in warm sunshine with a light breeze,” he added.  “So much for weather forecasts.”

The match was won by Willie Moons who drew one of the current hot pegs, 29, to take a creditable 24.1 kilos.

Second, on the adjacent Peg 30, was Roy Dainty (14.3 kilos). Doug Hornblow (10.9 kilos) came third, pipping Jeremey Fardoe (10.9) by the narrowest margin of a few grammes.

Further information about the club can be found on its website  or on the Facebook page Carp-R-Us Fishing Costa Blanca.
