Pole Boys Top Pairs

Tom Scholey and Matt Godfrey win Preston Innovations Pairs festival.
Pole Fishing’s editorial assistant, Matt Godfrey, and regular Match and Pole Fishing contributor Tom Scholey have won the Preston Innovations-sponsored Parkdean Pairs Festival at White Acres.

The duo clinched the win after a tight festival – which saw them tied at the top of the 28-pair field going into the final day. Fortunately for the Daventry-based pair, a favourable draw on the Trewaters complex gave them two section wins, meaning they took victory by a four-point margin.

Tom commented: “It has been a brilliant week's fishing, and Matt and I have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and are delighted to have lifted the trophy. The competition has been really tight all week – and because every result counts, just one bad performance on the last day could have seen us drop right down the rankings. Fortunately, the draw-bag gods were kind, and a good final day meant we did enough to clinch the title.”

Runners-up were local aces Harry Billing and Stewart Lister, with Norfolk rods Jimmy Brooks and Simon Smith taking third place.
