THE final match of the Carp-R-Us Spring Series was fished on the Eden stretch of the River Segura.

This often-maligned section can produce decent weights when conditions are right and on most occasions nearly everyone catches some fish.

Lately, though, it has been strange as very few fish are seen “topping.” The mullet that used to be commonplace seem to have vanished (along with the blue crabs, thankfully). Unfortunately, there are still plenty of terrapins around.


For the second match running, Willy Moons ran out winner with 7.10 kilos, finishing well ahead of Doug Hornblow on 3.45 kilos. Third, continuing his good form, was Terry Stroud with 2.92 kilos. A single 2.60-kilo carp was sufficient to give Jeremy Fardoe fourth place.

The series was won by Dave Hutchinson with an incredible 229 points out of a possible 240. Willy Moons finished runner-up with 213 points, Steve Fell was third with 211 and Roy Dainty fourth with 206
