The event was supported and sponsored by Pegler Yorkshire. Customers, staff and suppliers from Leicester, Northampton, Birmingham and Leeds branch, were split and spread over nine lakes in the drizzly weather. The attendees could socialise, and the match fishers competed against each other during the day.
After fishing, the dedicated anglers had food and drink while the winners of each lake were calculated. After, the results were in with the winners could be announced of who came third, second and first during the presentation by Jeff Robertshaw and Steve Jackson.
The person who came third was Lee Sutton from WM Building Services weighing in at 159lb 10oz, second place went to Joe Oakes from Lockhurst Kitchens with the weight of 169lb 14oz. The first place went to Carl Hulley from Dunchurch Services with the heaviest weight of 185lb 11oz. The winner as always will get to have their name engraved in history on the Smith Brothers fishing trophy.
Jeff Robertshaw, the organiser of the event and retired Joint Manager Director of Smith Brothers said; “Even though it was a bit soggy, I think everyone enjoyed the day and I have had lots of feedback to say what a great day it was… despite the weather!!”
