Southampton-based angling ace, Myles Levy has won the Pole Fishing Royal Berkshire Silverfish Festival with a perfect two-point score.
Bag 'Em Matchbaits-backed Myles also managed two lake wins – taking his total winner's purse to £530! On the first day, the 27-year-old rod drew Peg 11 on Lake One at the beautiful Royal Berkshire Fisheries. Fishing maggots and caster on the long pole, Myles won the lake with a modest 6-14-0 of skimmers, after some cold rain knocked sport on the head on the first day.
His second day's fishing was far more typical of what anglers have come to expect from Royal Berkshire, with his 19-6-0 net of good-stamp roach and perch proving comfortabl enough for another lake win.
Preston Innovations Delcac ace, Robbie Taylor took second spot with three points. Robbie had a lake second on day one, but went on to blitz the match individually on the second day with an awesome 26-6-0 net of roach from Lake Three. Pole Fishing’s own Matt Godfrey took third spot, also with three points.
