Sunday 10th June - Summer League Round 1

Expectations were high of 'slab' bream and carp showing in all sections after an excellent opening weeks fishing.  However, as often happens come match day, only a few slabs and small carp showed in the Second Basin, with rudd and roach dominating in the Lower Basin.  Adrian Hill tempted two slabs on the worm, taking one in the last five minutes which was enough to claim the opening victory of the season.  Sailors weight of over 15lbs was boosted by a number of skimmers, carp and quality rudd, many taken on the maggot.  Ady Larkins was unlucky to be pipped at the post.  Sticking to worm and pellet baits he banked three slabs and a weight of over 14lbs, usually enough for anyone to win.  Duncan Edwards finished a creditable third with a 7lb 2oz net of silvers, just pushing Brian Powel off the final podium spot.  However, after a year away from the match scene it was an excellent return for Brian winning his section.  Last years Summer League champion Nathan Underwood also won his section with 6lbs of silver fish.
