Lee wins Sev­ern gru­eller

THE River Sev­ern at Bewd­ley was low, clear and rock hard for the 60-peg An­gling Trust River­Fest 2017 qual­i­fier, more than half of the field not weigh­ing in.

Wolver­hamp­ton stone­ma­son Lee Har­ries (Ca­dence/DH An­gling) net­ted six bar­bel, a chublet and a perch to­tal­ing

20 lb 10 oz on pel­let feeder at peg 75 be­low Lax Lane Ford. Join­ing him in the Fi­nal on the Wye will be zone-top­pers Steve Clark and Brian Jones.

Oak­wood daz­zle but Im­age take ti­tle

MA­TRIX IM­AGE wrapped up the 14-teams-of-five Sen­sas Oak­wood Sum­mer League ti­tle on the Grand Union Canal from Iv­inghoe to Slap­ton, in Buck­ing­hamshire.

The fi­nal round be­longed to Sen­sas Oak­wood Green, who clocked up the high­est ever sin­gle day score in the league’s his­tory – 59 points – led by in­di­vid­ual win­ner Tony Cas­sidy, who slid 46 lb 4 oz of bream and perch onto the scales.

“I drew five pegs above the wires at Slap­ton and fed 16- and 13-me­tre lines. In the first 80 min­utes I put 20 lb of bream to 4 lb in the net over a sin­gle ball of ground­bait on the long line,” Winch­more Hill, North Lon­don-based Tony told An­gler’s Mail. “Then the wind picked up and I lost ten hooks, six floats and a top two kit in the bush. I had to drop back to 13 m, I think I’d have had 60 lb­plus other­wise,” he added.

NOT­TING­HAM Pis­ca­to­rial So­ci­ety’s River Trent Cham­pi­onship Open drew 55 an­glers to the Rolle­ston and Fisker­ton stretches, which sel­dom see match ac­tion nowa­days.

Af­ter two slow hours at Rolle­ston peg 24, Mans­field rod Dave Rose (Clip­stone AC) struck into his first of 41 bream on ground­bait feed­ered worms and mag­gots for a 99 lb 13 oz top weight. John Bot­tfield, started quickly us­ing the same tac­tics on Fisker­ton peg 14, and ran Dave close with 93 lb 12 oz. ■
