The first heat of the Greys National Bank Championships took place at Innis Fishery near St Austell in Cornwall on Sunday, 12th February 2012.
Sunny conditions and cold weather greeted the twelve anglers that took part. They came from as far afield as Tiverton in Devon and St Agnes in the West of Cornwall. No fresh stockies were put in prior to the match in order to make it a fairer competition, thus making the fishing challenging for all anglers. However, two anglers caught their six fish limit and thirty three fish were caught throughout the six-hour competition.
First place went to Steve Wiggins of Holsworthy, second place went to Dave Johns from St Austell, and third place went to Alex Bobba from Tiverton. A second heat is planned at Innis, however this is subject to the competition’s availability – date to be confirmed.
