Canal Pool (Earl of Chesterfield Cup)
- Bernard Robinson 99lb 4oz
- Charlotte Baker 87lb 14oz
- Barry Stokes 81lb 3oz
David Burton ran the match in the absence of Mark Baker, the Match Secretary, but under the watchful eye of Mark’s wife, Charlotte! It was a great turnout to this popular venue, with 23 anglers taking part. Considering the number of people fishing, it fished quite well with only one person not weighing in.
Bernard Robinson took the top spot on the day, catching carp on the pole throughout the match from peg 10. Hot on his heels was Charlotte Baker, who fished her first ever match without her husband. She drew peg 28 and caught carp to 8lb on the feeder.
Barry Stokes completed the frame, despite drawing unfavoured peg 16.
Mention should also go to Cory Williamson, the only junior in RoTAS, who caught on feeder and pole in the margins and weighed 60lb 11oz to finish up in a highly creditable 8th place.
