Stanjay Saturday Open Godmanchester
RAMSEY angler Paul Kilby once again comfortably beat the rest of the field as he continues to dominate these matches with another fine win.
This time, the versatile angler fished chopped worm from peg 19 to put together a net of quality perch with the biggest being a 2lb 12oz specimen.
He also had three more that were over the 1lb mark, but his weight of 12lb was the best weight these waters have seen for a while. In second place was Andy Leathers with 3lb of roach, while third place went to Ian Benton, who had 2lb 8oz of roach.
BEFORE the match started on Sunday, everyone thought that a low draw would be needed to win at Ramsey St Mary's, but as the match progressed it was the anglers around the wires that were finding better fish.

The successful angler was once again Paul Kilby, who is currently almost unbeatable, making this his second weekend on the trot that he has won both the matches he fished. Fishing peg nine, he put together a net of roach fishing a number of different methods for 10lb 2oz.
In second place was Brampton's Chris Saunders who, fishing next to Kilby on peg 10, had 7lb 10oz. Third place also went to a Brampton angler, Will Hadley, who had 6lb 14oz.
HAJAC Winter Series
THIS forthcoming Sunday sees the start of this year's HAJAC teams of six series. Any clubs wishing to enter the competition need to urgently contact organiser Roy Wincup via the shop.
Last Sunday, anglers fished the Twenty Foot river at March, in preparation for this week's match.
The venue fished reasonably well with everyone managing to trouble the scales man. It was Stanjay anglers who dominated the day, taking the top three places.
The day's winner was Brett Kiddie, who had a tench along with some roach and rudd for 9lb 15oz.
In second place was Joss Pace, with 8lb 4.6oz, Ian Benton managed 7lb 15.5oz for third and Dave Thornton was fourth, with 7lb 7oz.
Lawn Farm Tuesday Open
ANOTHER good turn out of 21 anglers fished Willow Lake at Lawn Farm last Tuesday and, again, it was the pegs around the top end of the Island that continue to provide the best sport on the lake.
Carp will always be needed to win these matches and again, either fishing a straight lead or small feeder with maggot on the hook is proving to be the best method. The day's winner was Andy Pollard. Fishing peg 34, he managed to land two carp along with chubb for a weight of 27lb.
Second place went to Brian Taylor, who drew peg 28 and also caught carp and chubb for 17lb 2oz.
Third place went to Roy Parker who, fishing next to Taylor on peg 27, had a carp and a few chubb for 12lb 7oz
