Geldart In The Final

Garbolino ace wins place in big money spectacular.
Garbolino and Dynamite Baits backed ace, Andy Geldart has become the second person ever to qualify for all three Maver Match This Finals, after winning the qualifier at Partridge Lakes in Cheshire with a weight of 134-09-00. Andy drew peg 4 on Ribbon and fished caster shallow at 11m to catch F1s and ide for the duration of the match. He joins Andy Power, who also qualified for his third final earlier in the year.

He commented :"I am over the moon to have made the final once again, especially after such a brilliant days fishing. Partridge Lakes must surely rank as one of the country's best venues, everybody has had plenty of room today and the quality of the sport has been fantastic.

I am really looking forward to the final at Larford - it had been a spectacular event the last two years, and I can't wait to get back and have another go at it."

Conditions for the latest, near-sell out Maver Match This qualifier were much cooler than in previous weeks. The 107 anglers were given plenty of room, spread across ten different lakes including Holbar, Covey lakes 1-5, Ribbon, Marsh, Spey and Pine.

Venue expert, Andy Bennett, finished very close behind Andy, from unfancied peg 21 on Covey 1. Andy opted to fish corn to take F1's to 2lbs with a few bonus mirror carp up to 5lbs for 130-03-00. Despite just missing out on this year's Grand Final, Andy qualifies for the Maver British Pole Championships.

Third on the day was taken by Adrian Twist (Leigh Tackle & Bait). Leigh drew peg 101 on Covey 5 to take mainly F1's up to 1lb to weigh in 122-14-00.

Pole Fishing magazine editor, Jon Arthur, finished in fourth place, also from Covey lake 5. Jon drew peg 126, and caught over 300 fish to end the match with 120-02-00 of F1's.

Michael Rogerson also books his place in this year's British Pole Championships weighing in 118-05-00 from peg 4 on Marsh lake finishing just ahead of Fishing Republic's Mitchell Rawlinson.
