Winter Through To £1,000 Final

steve-winter-rookery-winSteve Winter has qualified for the Rookery Waters £1,000 Final after scoring an impressive 190lb match win at the Cambridgeshire venue.

After a slow first three hours on Peg 25 on  Magpie Lake the Drennan and Bait-Tech angler persevered with his left-hand margin to bag up late on maggots over dead reds and krill groundbait. His 190lb 4oz return saw him through to the big-money Final in August, just ahead of second-placed Richard Bond who managed 171b 2oz from Peg 2.
