Stone reigns supreme in Acorn's Paddock battle
GEOFF Stone came up with the winning overall catch in the South West Disabled & Over-50s AC match, fished on Acorn's Paddock at Kingston Seymour.
Stone drew to fish at Paddock three. He lightly ground-baited his 10-metre pole line and the bottom of the nearside shelf with micro pellet and on the whistle attacked the former with an 8mm pellet of punched luncheon meat
He said: "When the carp stopped feeding I switched to my second line of attack and continued to catch regularly.
"A small but regular amount of feed kept the odd fish interested and at the weigh-in my 57-8-0 catch of carp was considered to be an excellent result."

He said: "I fished mainly for carp from the start, but was quite happy to add whatever came along to my keepnet."
