A warm late summer evening greeted the Juniors of Dorchester and District Angling Society.
The four finalists had competed over three qualifying rounds through the summer to try to win the inaugural Knockout title, and it all came to a head on the Stock Pond at Revels fishery.
Faith Stone, Josiah Wells- Parkes, Oliver Smith, and Jack Copp had just two hours to catch as many fish as they could, and all
set out for one species, carp.
Jack had a good start, catching a three pound fish almost instantly but was soon caught up by Oliver in the next peg. Josiah crept past Jack too by the end to claim second place.
Despite trying hard, the winner at the end and new knockout champion was Oliver Smith weighing an impressive 18lbs 1oz.
Ollie won a trophy and a £20 voucher for Revels tackle shop.
