Holloway Crowned Feeder Champion
Jordan Holloway became the first Gizmo Angling Commercial Feeder Champion, after a tight three day battle at the Larford Lakes complex in Worcestershire.
The nineteen year old Bewdley based international saw off a very close challenge from local ace Ray Lamb to take the honours with a total cumulative weight of 160-560.
He said: “I am absolutely over the moon to be crowned champion. The fishing was very good, as it always is here at Larford, and the key for me was keeping catching for the full duration of the session. There are a lot of F1s and skimmers in the Match Lake, where I have been lucky enough to draw for two of the three days, and these helped me to build my weight early before the bigger carp switched on later in the day.”
Jordan picked up just over £2,000 in total over the three days fishing, plus a bespoke Gizmo Angling ZT Pro Hook Tyiing Station courtesy of the sponsor.
Runner up, Ray Lamb walked away with over £1,000, while third placed Martin Edis took home a similar amount.
Event organiser, Tom Scholey said: “Its always nerve wracking when you launch a new competition as to how it is received, but I couldn’t be happier with how this one has gone!
The fishing has been great, and the superpool has allowed me to pay generous daily prizes as well as a hefty main list.
Massive thanks to the sponsor, Gizmo Angling, without whom this event would not be possible, and the venue, Larford Lakes for providing such a spectacular arena.”
