Angling Times (UK) - - NORTH -

THIS three-day event was a sell-out, with some of the finest bream an­glers in the North West and Mid­lands lin­ing up

The lo­cal lads proved that you can’t beat knowl­edge of a wa­ter as they filled the top five over­all places.

St Helens man David Rigby took the title and over £1,000 in win­nings with a per­fect three sec­tion wins. He be­gan with 21-14-0 of skim­mers from peg 8 on ground­bait feeder and red­worm, back­ing that up with a solid 23-10-0 sec­tion win­ner at peg 60 us­ing the same ap­proach.

The fi­nal day beck­oned with peg 115 on the road side, and David obliged with an­other big weight, bagging 26-8-0 of skim­mers and a few bream us­ing feeder and worm tac­tics.
