SKIMMERS to 1 lb 8 oz gave Mike ‘Buzzer’ Berntsen (Garbolino Blackmore Vale) victory in Round Four of the Upper Thames WL, on the Kennet and Avon Canal at Semington, in Wiltshire.
THE annual Olney & Clifton Royal British Legion Open – fished by 33 on the Great Ouse the day before the annual Armistace commemoration – raised £160 for the noble cause.
Upper Ouse ace Paul Caton (Vauxhall AC) added another title to his CV with a 19 lb 3 oz victory, comprising quality roach and dace on pole and maggots plus a brace of chub, the biggest scaling 4 lb 11 oz, on waggler and maggots.
