Drennan KO Cup, The ultimate test? There are some fantastic events in the angling calendar year on year, but what really proves to be the ultimate test of skill and bottle? We have 130 peg one day qualifiers where ultimately it’s down to who draws well and can keep their bottle for a full five hours without cracking under the pressure of the occasion. We also have events such as White Acres Festivals and the UK Champs where consistency is key against top opposition! But in my opinion Match Fishing’s own Drennan Knockout Cup is head and shoulders above any other competition in that it’s an invited field of the very best the country has to offer, held over a number of months and equally gruelling rounds across a multitude of different venues meaning a ‘one trick pony’ is most unlikely to progress very far in the competition, if at all! In recent years I’ve concentrated on Fish’O’Mania and making two finals along the way was great, but with ticket allocation becoming more and more difficult I found myself with a lot of time on my hands to dedicate to something else this year, and having never been able to give the Knockout Cup much time with regards to practise, it became the focus of my year. The first round at Lindholme Lakes will probably go down as one of my finest wins to date, I cannot think of a better 110 peg match to win, a red letter day of the highest order. But from what to me is a ‘standard’ day at a top quality commercial fishery, we was then thrust into the world of canal fishing now this to me personally was going to be a big challenge – I used to do loads of canal fishing and really enjoyed it, but with the main events being held on commercials I hadn’t visited one for a good few years.

Cameron Hughes has won the Drennan Rive Silverfish Festival with an impressive 112b catch of roach and skimmers over two days. This is the first year that this prestigious event has been run at the prolific White Acres holiday complex in Cornwall. The 78-strong field included 20 invited anglers from France, the Drennan Team England squad and a host of other top names. The event was run as a float-only competition with a 13m pole limit and strictly no carp, crucians or F1s counted… although more than a few were hooked in the unseasonably mild conditions! The top five anglers all posted two section wins but it was Cameron Hughes that stole the show.

Feeder World Champion Steve Ringer has won more matches than he can remember with bream, so who better to learn from than the master himself?It is no secret that fishing for bream is my all-time favourite style of fishing. I just love setting a trap of bait and then working out how best to catch these big ‘aquatic sheep’. Venues such as Ferry Meadows, where I am today, are very much my passion and hopefully I will be able to pass on some sound advice to help you get among more slabs. Ferry is one of the few remaining traditional bream waters, as far as I am concerned, and the way the matches are run here – Method feeders and boilies are banned – mean that traditional tactics are also required.

Match Fishing’s Joe Carass has something on his chest that he needs to get off! F1s, F1s, F1s, I’ve got bloody F1s on the brain at the moment. I go to sleep thinking of F1s and I wake up, still thinking about them. Yes I am totally obsessed by them! I think they get a bit of a bad rap. I hear no end of ‘star’ names slagging the poor little devils off and I can’t really think of a logical reason why.

Fish 'O' Mania champion Andy Geldart talks preparation. . . There used to be a time I when would turn up on the bank with just a handful of rigs and not many hooklengths tied.
