Cold winds and hail battered the Saturday attendance but it didn’t stop an absolute masterclass in short pole fishing from England international Lee Kerry (Preston Innovations/Sonubaits).  Fishing peg 57, Lee caught on pellet baits to net approximately 250-plus F1s for a 50lb cushion over the rest of the field, including Mick Herrington (Matrix Halifax) in second.

Sunday April 17
Bonsai, Beeches, Strip, Loco, Laurels (98 pegs)
1. H Bignall 120-8-0, Beeches 7
2. S Rothery 115-2-0, Strip 11
3. M Godfrey 101-13-0, Laurels 68
4. P Yates 96-9-0, Bonsai 6

Another massive attendance of 98 saw a real mixed bag of lakes in the frame, and a win for Harry Bignell (Bag ‘Em Match Baits) from peg 7 on Beeches in the bowl. With a bit of space to work with he used the long pole and pellet and also caught some in the margins, including carp to 8lb. Second place went to Steve Rothery on the end peg 11 on Strip. He took carp to double figures fishing down the edge and into the corner, his catch is pictured below.
