BROOKSIDE FISHERIES (SUN)
With two wins on the spin at Brookside, all eyes were on Andy Butler to make it a hattrick –and the Mosella man duly made it victory number three with 74-12-0 of F1s to 3lb off peg 5 on the Snake Lake, fishing pellet shallow just off the far bank at 12m. Paul Casson was a close second, a fish behind with 72-0-0 of F1s off peg 19 on the same lake. There was a tie for top spot as small fish made up the winning 11-7-0 weights. Knaresborough rod Dave Bramley drew on the Pear Tree section and picked up roach and small chub on stick float and maggot tactics. Geoff Scollick on the Calder Road area had dace on stick float and caster.
