July SAS Competition Winners
The time has come once again to pick our SAS Competition winners! July was probably one of the wettest months we’ve had in a long time but the stormy conditions were music to the ears of carp anglers and as a result, we received an influx of submissions! Alas, only three anglers can make it onto the podium and after some careful deliberation, we’ve come to a decision…
Taking the number one spot in our SAS Competition for July was Birmingham angler John Mason who slipped his net under an incredible common of 31lb from a local park lake laden with graffiti!
The 30-year-old targeted a whole in the middle of a weed bed which he’d baited with Monster Tiger Nut and Crave boilies alongside two tins of Hemp & Snails before flicking out his slip-d-rigged Pink Crave pop-up.
For his efforts, John wins a £100 RRP bait allowance!
We have another fresh entry for second place in the form of Kieren Clements who banked a stunning mirror of 31lb and ounces from a low stock estate lake of around 30 acres in size.
It’s the third year Kieren has been targeting the silt-ridden lake and he finally hit into one of the target fish when he switched up his approach during a recent session.
He told us: “After not getting much success using pop-ups I decided to scale everything down and fished a drilled-out and corked Frenzied Tiger Nut hookbait straight out of the jar over a spread of tigers and Hot Crab & Krill boilies.
“24-hours in on the first morning this rod ripped off which resulted in one of the A-Team known as ‘The Tench’ at over 31lb. Buzzing is an understatement!”
Congrats Kieren, you’ve won yourself a £60 RRP bait allowance!
Taking the third and final spot this month was Nathan Gray who bolstered his two first place wins this season with the capture of a magnificent saddle-back common of 26lb 5oz.
Nath had been welcomed onto his mate’s syndicate lake for a 24-hour session and ended up enjoying his most successful trip of the season so far where bites are concerned with 19 fish landed including 10 carp, 1 catfish and 9 grassies.
All fish banked took Hot Crab & Krill Pop-Ups fished over a mix of 15mm matching boilies and Monster Tiger Nut boilies soaked in our Krill Liquid Carp Food.
Nathan wins a £30 RRP bait allowance for the capture!
