Marlow Takes Junior Crown
Billy Marlow took the Fish‘O’Mania Junior title with a bag of 11.050kg, although he thought it was Nathan Mills on the next peg who had taken the title.
“It is hard to put into words,” said Billy of his win. “I thought I was one fish off, I had said to everyone behind me that I was one off. I didn’t feel I had fished a great match but it just shows that one last fish in the last half hour can do it for you. Even when Nathan’s bag came out, I still thought he had done me.
“I only had three carp but they were all a decent size stamp so it just shows that you don’t necessarily need many bites. The prize money will probably go towards a new pole.
“I entered a few of the main event qualifiers but I will try again next year as it would be great to come back in the main final and hopefully one day try and win that.”
