Andy Gooding Is The Best Of The Best!

Andy Gooding beat 50 anglers in the recent South West Lakes Trust inaugural Best of the Best event at Wimbleball Lake to scoop the £2,000 prize – the biggest in the trout fishing calendar, plus a box of Turrall’s flies and a 12-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine.
Andy fished the venue’s Picnic bank and Bessoms and banked nine trout for 12lb 1oz – all on a Cat Booby, most of the fish coming two feet below the surface fishing a Di-3 line and a 20-foot leader. It was a close call, as Darren Rundle also finished with the same weight of 12lb 1oz, but he only banked eight fish, so Andy took the top honour thanks to his extra fish.
Darren’s second place earned him the £1,500 runner-up cheque, plus a box of Turrall’s flies and a 12-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine.
“I’m delighted to win this fantastic event”, said Andy. ‘There was a great atmosphere. It [the event] was well run and well marshalled”.
Third place was claimed by Dave Johns with eight fish for 11lb 7oz, who picked up £1,000, plus a box of Turrall’s flies and a 12-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine, and the final cash prize was won by Steve Ebdon who picked up £500, a Snowbee fly line – worth £40, plus a box of Turrall’s flies and a 12-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine for fourth place. He had four fish for 8lb 2oz.
Other prize winners included John Galnfield – four fish for 6lb 8oz, who picked up a South West Waters Trust All-water fishing permit for 2015 – worth £500, plus a box of Turrall’s flies and a 12-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine, and Darren Penfold – four fish for 6lb 4oz, who won an Orvis Passage carryall, plus a box of Turrall’s flies and a 12-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine.
There were also prizes for every angler from seventh to fifteenth place, and every angler who qualified for the final, but did not finish in the top 12, each received a three-month subscription to Total Flyfisher magazine.
Fifty anglers qualified for the big-money final by catching either the heaviest or second heaviest fish in any one week from either Kennick, Wimbleball, Siblyback, Burrator or Stithians Reservoirs throughout the season.
