Local matchman Daz Oldham stole victory at Hallcroft, during Monday’s Open on the Moat, beating 37 anglers with over 200lb of carp.

Daz fished pellet cone with hair-rigged corn to take match weight of the week.

He then repeated his form during Tuesday’s Open taking second place behind Alan Tait.

Mick Taylor’s efforts paid off during Thursday’s Open, winning his first Hallcroft match with a 70lb haul.

Club official Mick Pogson showed that he’s not just a pen pusher, landing a good mixed net from Wetlands, including a specimen bream of 6lb 9oz.
