The Annual and now very long running Angling Trust Masters Championship (previously the ACA Masters) was held on Saturday 30th August 2014 at Mallory Park Fisheries Leicestershire.
14 teams of six anglers lined the banks of The Glebe and the Foundation Lake. Fishery owner Roy Marlow runs this event and he thanked all the anglers for being fantastic ambassadors for the Angling Trust.
Although the fishing was very serious everyone had a great time and there was a lot of fun had by everyone. Roy Marlow commented “this event supported by many of the most talented anglers in the country is by far the best competition in the fishing year at Mallory Park Fisheries. Every member of the Angling Trust demonstrates how much fun can be had in a serious competition like this. It is the anglers and their supporting companies that make this all happen.”
It was a nail biting finish for the individual winner and the top team with so many good weights being recorded on the day.
The winning team by just two points was Team Daiwa closely followed by M.A.P. Team Daiwa consisted of; Phil Ringer, Luke Sears, Pemb Wrighting, Paul Holland, Steve Ringer, and Martin Greene. It was on the wire right till the end regarding the individual winner with 5 anglers only a few fish apart. There were 29 weights over 100 lbs recorded, but it was Marukyu star Andrew Williams who edged his way clear with a weight of 205 lbs to take the title.
Special thanks also went to Marukyu UK who sponsored the trophies for this event.
