Cameron Hughes wins the Drennan Rive Silverfish Festival.

There are 78 anglers fishing this prestigious invitation only event which includes Drennan team England, Drennan sponsored anglers, members of the press and 20 French anglers including former world champion Didier Dellanoy.

The event is over 2 days and is split into 6-peg sections over 6 lakes Jennys, Pollawyn, Python, Nelsons, Sycamore and Twin Oaks.

Day One
As this is a Silverfish competition no Carp, F1’s or Crucians counted. There was also a 13 metre pole limit and is float only with no pellets allowed. The first day got off to a good start with Cameron Hughes taking the lead on peg 25 Pollawyn with 55lb of Roach and Skimmers which he caught on caster shallow.

Our very own Clint Elliott had 42lb 7oz of Skimmers on peg 15 Python fishing at 5 metres on dead maggot over ground bait. Matt Godfrey took 3rd with 41lb 7oz on Jenny’s 6 on caster and worm.
