RYE DAS LEAGUE River Med­way, Barm­ing (44 pegs)

There is only one round of this pop­u­lar league left to go and, as it stands, there is all to play for as only five points sep­a­rate the top four. On the day, it was Brown­ing Xi­tan’s Paul Lamb who fared best af­ter he used the feeder with worm and ground­bait from peg 57 for 22-9-0 of roach and bream.

STAFFORD MOOR Tan­ners & Wood­pecker Lakes (25 pegs)

Flat calm and red-hot con­di­tions were hardly ideal for a day’s bag­ging, but Dave Stock­ton brushed aside those con­cerns to haul out 116-15-0. Work­ing with pel­let and wag­gler up in the wa­ter from peg 27 on Tan­ners, the venue ex­pert took carp to 9lb. Top weight on Wood­pecker Lake was by Rob Dixon, who weighed in 88-8-0 from peg 3.

TYLERS COM­MON Horse­shoe Pool (24 pegs)

Colin Fuller made light work of the op­po­si­tion and fin­ished with 252-8-0 in his nets. Meat down the edge of peg 36 soon had the fish queu­ing up, with carp to dou­ble fig­ures be­ing fooled. Gra­ham Dack was best of the rest on 197-0-0 from peg 10.

Re­sult: 1 C Fuller, Lake John, 252-8-0; 2 G Dack, Maver, 197-0-0; 3 G Manoli, An­gling Di­rect, 196-0-0; 4 A Bolt, Rob­bos, 162-0-0; 5 K Wilder, Tylers, 159-0-0; 6 D Har­rold, OBT, 158-0-0.

WHITE ACRES GOLD RES­I­DENTS (MON) Twin Oaks (24 pegs)

Three pegs in a row pro­vided the top trio, and it was John Wor­thing­ton who just about edged the verdict. Drawn on peg 17, the Stan­dish Sharks an­gler used the pel­let feeder with a banded 8mm hookbait for 147-8-0 of carp and F1s. Si­mon Wat­son took 135-8-0 from peg 18, with Matt Sel­lars tak­ing third from peg 16 with 131-7-0.

WHITE ACRES RES­I­DENTS ROVER (THURS) All lakes rover (48 pegs)

Dave Mo­ran’s de­ci­sion to pick peg 17 for this rover on Twin Oaks proved to be a wise one when he took a com­fort­able 180-0-0 vic­tory. Us­ing pel­let in the mar­gins, the Ash­ton An­gling rod found a mix­ture of carp and F1s. That saw off the threat from Rob Mor­ris, who se­cured sec­ond place with 152-3-0 from peg 15 on Sycamore Lake.

Re­sult: 1 D Mo­ran, Ash­ton An­gling, 180-0-0; 2 R Mor­ris, Whisby An­gling, 152-3-0; 3 K Pen­fold, Border Match An­gling, 142-2-0; 4 A Read, If­fers AC, 141-6-0; 5 J Nightin­gale, Lit­tle­bor­ough, 122-0-0; 6 J Wor­thing­ton, Stan­dish Tackle, 113-4-0.
