The former World Champion fished at 13m in 12ft of water with groundbait, casters and chopped worms and also loose fed  a 6m caster swim to keep quality roach coming. Three bonus skimmers helped to boost his winning weight, which also helped to elevate him to the top of the league.

Runner-up Steve Winter was also drawn on Donno Lake. After a break from match angling the Fenland ace showed that he’s not lost his touch, catching a level 25lb of skimmers and bream at 13m. Third was Phil Turner from unfancied peg 21 on the Carp Lake with a quality 23lb 12oz mixed bag.
