River & Stream Pools
- Dave Burton 63lb 7oz
- Mark Baker 58lb 7oz
- Josh Derry
19 Radcliffe anglers turned out for this latest match at Lake View. It soon became apparent that the match was going to be won on the draw, as the end pegs on both lakes seemed to be producing the majority of the fish. Mark Baker, Josh Derry and Nic Wort were all left grinning after the draw.
The match kicked off on time with Mark Baker and Josh Derry finding some early fish. Mark demonstrated some skills by landing a lot of his fish on the pole – but using the method feeder. However, this would be a match with a twist . . .
Dave Burton, who had been fishing the venue quite regularly with his Bennett’s team, worked his peg (16 on River) really well, catching on corn over groundbait, on the pole.
The match closed with Dave Burton being rewarded with his first match win of the season and a final weight of 63lb 7oz. Second place went to Mark Baker with a weight of 58lb 7oz and 3rd went to junior angler, Josh Derry – well done Josh, another great result!
Angler of the day went to Bernard Robinson who, having forgotten his pole and borrowing a top kit from Mark Baker, still managed to land an impressive 34lb of fish!
