Conditions were excellent with a steady flow, a bit of colour and warm weather.
The match was won by Mark Dickerson from peg 10 with an all-small-fish catch of 12lb 6oz. Paul Ashcroft was second from peg 12, also a golden peg with 10lb which included a 4lb 11oz tench and Josh Pace was third with 9lb 14oz.
With the fourth and fifth weights also being nearly seven pounds, the venue is fishing well.
