Post Match Report for
Orchard Place Farm - Lake 8 - Maidstone - Kent
Eliminator | Round Three: 25th-27th May 2012
Dan's the man at Orchard Place Farm
Orchard Place Farm seems to be a complex that throws up some fantastic results whatever the weather, and after a storming first day it was the BCAC’s own Neil Rivers who set the early pace. Taking a break from his marshaling duties, by Saturday morning Neil had racked up over 130lb of Orchard Farm Lake 8 carp. Dave warren was sat in second with 61lb, but match fishing being the unpredictable sport that it is, the second half of the contest would see a complete transformation when the carp made a telling move of their own. All of a sudden, the anglers with carp free swims in the first half of the contest were suddenly sitting on a shedful. After a slow start, it was Dan Mason who would take full advantage and in less than 24 hours fishing stacked up a massive 400lb to win the contest from Michael Fleets' 16 fish catch for 208lb 5oz.
