          The Monday honours at Boldings Pools went to Shifnal rod Dave Mortlock who put a pellet and worm combination to good use at peg 18 on the Chestnut Pool. Carp and bream moved in on the bait, which Dave presented at 4 metres and in the margins, and at the whistle, he had slipped the net under 105-3-0 under samples to 7lbs and 3lbs respectively.

          Along at peg 13 Steve Owen [Monkhall] had a mix of carp to 7lbs and barbel to 3lbs on corn and pellet to finish second on 94-8-0. Over on peg 36 Graham Roberts [PI Boldings] put 79-12-0 in the weigh sling to pick up third, with Tony Foster [PI Bold] filling 4th from peg 16 where he scaled 73-1-0.


                    Dave Brown [Maver] added another win to his 2017 list on Saturday, when carp to 12lbs helped push his weight to 113-1-0. Pegged on the Sycamore, at peg 28, Dave worked shallow maggot to attract his fish.

          Steve Owen picked up another second by topping the Larch Pool card. He worked corn down the edge at peg 1 to tempt 88-12-0 of carp to 6lbs. Matt Edgerton [Oakengates Angling Centre] was at peg 19 on the Larch and had 67-1-0 to collect third, and close behind was Harry Colley [PI Bold] on 64-7-0 at Sycamore 13.        


                    On Sunday Tony Woolaston [Fatty's] fished pellet and corn at 8 metres and along the side from corner peg 32 on the Oak Pool to finish in the number one spot.   Carp to 6lbs and bream to 2lbs added up to 112-1-0 to hand the victory to Tony.

          Larch peg 1 filled second again when Bob Baker [PI Bold] swapped between shallow pellet and corn down the side to net a level 96-0-0 of carp to 8lbs and bream to 2lbs. Dave Brown tagged a third place onto his first by weighing 92-4-0 at point peg 29 on the Oak, while a Hawthorn top score of 89-8-0 gave Dave Lloyd [Maver] a close third.
