CARP-R-US fished the tenth round of their Summer-Autumn Series at El Bosquet near Elche.

“The match was scheduled for the River Segura at Bigastro but rain at the beginning of the week meant that the river was flooded and unfishable,” Carp-R-Us secretary Steve Fell said.

“The match was fished on what was probably the coolest day for several months, with the temperature only rising to the mid-twenties,” he added. “Members fished the long back channel and, as is the norm there lately, the lower peg numbers fished better than the higher ones.”

The winner was Jeremy Fardoe with 10.9 kilos caught mainly down the edge on peg 29.

Returning Tony Flett came second (5.5 kilos from peg 33) withWilly Moons in third place (5.2 kilos from Peg 30).  Terry Screen and Steve Fell took joint fourth place with 3.4 kilos apiece from Pegs 39 and 38. were.
