HAPPY LEAGUE River Trent, Holme Marsh (64 pegs)

Paul Gould­ing showed no mercy for his ri­vals as he put to­gether an in­cred­i­ble 80-500 for a very easy vic­tory. The Daiwa Dons rod found him­self drawn on a huge shoal of bream that were in peg 6 in the weir field. He used the feeder with worm and caster for dozens of slabs to 5lb. If it hadn’t been for a snag that he lost nu­mer­ous hook-lengths and fish on, he would al­most cer­tainly have bro­ken the river record. Weights then dropped right off to more nor­mal lev­els, with Jan Stephen­son tak­ing the run­ner-up spot with 13-250 from peg 10.

Re­sult: 1 P Gould­ing, Daiwa Dons, 80-500; 2 J Stephen­son, Nor­man­ton, 13-250; 3 J Cameron, Nor­man­ton, 8-200; 4 T Goldby, Hull, 6-450; 5 D Scales, Mosella, 6-280; 6 J Good­win, Tri-Cast Calder, 4-850.

PAR­TRIDGE LAKES Covey Canal Lakes (84 pegs)

There were a few 100lb-plus catches and Craig Eb­brell’s 126-2-0 was the best of them. Mag­got over ground­bait down the edge of peg 149 helped the Tri­c­ast High­field man find F1s to

3lb along with the odd bonus carp. Paul Jones ro­tated be­tween 6m and 13m pole lines with pel­let from peg 42 to take the run­ner-up spot with 105-14-0.

WOOD­LAND LAKES Curlew, Kestrel, Par­trisge & Wag­tail Lakes (50 pegs)

The fish­ery’s great form con­tin­ued as Dean Smith gained the brag­ging rights thanks to a 160-9-0 catch. Curlew and Par­tridge were heav­ily fan­cied at the draw, but the cham­pion worked his magic from peg 4 on Wag­tail Lake. He used long pole and pel­let, be­fore com­ing down the edge to take fish to just shy of 18lb.
