ANDREW ADAMS and Sam Stringfellow have taken the most prestigious title in competition carp fishing at the first attempt, and landed themselves a £30,000 pay day in the process.
The Wofte sponsored pair, from Chorley, Lancashire, saw off stiff competition to be crowned the British Carp Angling Championships champions for 2015.
In the end it was a fairly comfortable win for them at RK Leisure’s Wraysbury One, in Berkshire, where they landed five fish for 92 lb 10 oz, nearly 40 lb clear of their nearest rivals.
Earlier in the 48 hour competition though it had been far less clear-cut who would ultimately win, with a number of pairs putting themselves in with a chance by landing fish early on.
At the halfway mark the eventual winners were yet to put a fish on the bank, with Jack Meyer and his partner Lewis Swift looking like they might walk away with it, thanks to Jack landing one of the Wraysbury originals – a fish known as No Name at 37 lb.
