1st: Carl Eland – Drennan Oxford Yellow – 33lb 4oz. Carl drew on Medley, one above the mudflats, and got off to a great start with 3 bream on the open end feeder for 8lb and then he managed to catch a brilliant net of roach on the waggler fishing tares over hemp feed.

2nd: Martin Kirk – Devizes MG – 18lb 2oz. Martin drew near the top end of Medley and had 1 big bream and 4 skimmers on the feeder and worm. He backed this up with some roach on the pole fishing maggot.
