2019/20 SAS Competition Winner Announced

The search to find a new member for 2020 is over with the result of our yearly SAS Competition.

Congratulations to Craig Waddington our SAS Competition winner for the season 2019/20! Craig follows in the footsteps of 2018-19 winner, James Buckler, who joined the team after winning last year and even found himself representing the brand at last year’s World Carp Classic.

Like James, Craig’s consistency, quality of photographs and top catches were too hard to ignore when we were selecting our winner. Find out how he won below…

Although as always, we were inundated with fantastic catches by anglers using our baits during the year and several other anglers pushed him close at the end, Craig stood out from the crowd thanks to his list of impressive catches.

Run of fish

Craig started his run of good form right back in September 2019 when he banked a jaw-dropping 44lb 12oz mirror from a park lake (see pic above). The catch featured in ‘Park Lake Assault’ a guest article written by the Northants carper for our website last month. He caught several other quality fish from this autumn campaign including the common below..

The catch set Craig on his way and he was soon following it up with another forty, this time a lovely lin on the CompleX-T from a Southern stillwater earning him another monthly bait prize and a stronger foothold on the competition.


Even in the depths of winter Craig continued to send in some great results including another warrior of a mirror in February (below) which earned him the second place prize for the month.

Keep an eye on our channels in the coming weeks for a follow-up video from Craig himself on how he won the competition…
