JON Gilks claimed top spot as Malvern Anglers fished their Taylor Cup contest at Willow Farm Pool, near Evesham.
Heavy rain and a strong wind throughout the contest made fishing conditions difficult and dampened the appetite of the fish.
Nevertheless, eventual winner Gilks, with 25-4-0, caught carp up to 3lb steadily throughout the contest, ledgering towards the middle of the pool with jelly bean bait.
In second place, using pole tactics with worm and maggot, Peter Yates caught a couple of good carp of about 5lb and some nice sized silver fish to weigh in 18-10-0.
Using similar pole tactics, Dave Wilkes caught some small carp and roach to weigh 9-9-0 to take third spot.
Results: 1 J Gilks (25-4-0); 2 Yates (18- 10-0); 3 Wilkes (9-9-0); 4 Rees (7-15-0); 5 Loveridge (7-9-0); 6 Shaw (3-0-0); 7 R Gilks (2-10-0).
