Alternating shallow caster with maggot in the margins, Dave kept in touch with carp to 8lbs at peg 30 on the Chestnut to beat the challenge of Terry Edwards [Kings] who was on Sycamore peg 13.

The Chestnut Pool came up with the winner again on Saturday when Paul Wheeler [PI Bold] offered pellet to the island, and close to the bank, at peg 26. Carp to 7lbs responded to give Paul a return of 97-6-0 which put him top of the days card.

Fishing pellet and maggot to each side of the point at Sycamore 13, and out at 5 metres gave Eric Bancroft his second frame appearance, and victory in the Sunday open. Carp to 7lbs and barbel to 3lbs made up a winning 146-5-0 for Eric, and a clear margin over runner up Dave Brown [Maver]. Dave was on peg 22 and fished caster and maggot up in the water as well as in the margins to net 108-10-0, Peg 40 saw Colin Wozek [Matrix] net 85-4-0 for third and an Oak best of 82-12-0 gave 4th to Dave Hailey [PI Bold].
