The Senior anglers fished Sophie’s Pond at Redhill on Sunday 27 Oct. After some extremely heavy rain water was rushing into the lake and combined with a very cold night the carp were extremely lethargic, hence the very low weights.
Dave Couzens won with 26lbs, 2nd was Paul Phillips with 20lbs 4oz, 3rd was Dia Davies with 15lbs 8oz

It is with deep regret that the Association has heard of the Passing of Oliver as he was known to all those who had contact with him from our Fishing Club over the years. He will be deeply missed by Dean and Darren and many of our older members will remember him well from the Early days of angling in Merthyr Tydfil from our generation.
” It’s been a good year this year with the MTAA Thomas Phillips Memorial Carp League. Had a lot more support this year than I had last year from both juniors and seniors and it’s nice to see so many people willing to put time aside to come and take part. Thanks everyone! “
