Seven up for Gibson after big 45lb haul

Angling with Stan and Fizz


BRIAN Gibson won his second consecutive match in the Saturday series weighing in 45lb 6oz from peg seven.

Stan Binge, drawn in peg 12, was a very close second - only two and a half pounds behind - and Ian Benton, back after fishing in the Irish Festivals, was third.

Still leading the series is Binge, although the picture will change once anglers have to drop their poorer results.
