Nene Summer League

THE third match of this year's summer series was fished at Orton and Milton on Sunday. Although the river looked good, the fishing was patchy and many anglers were troubled by pike preventing the fish from settling to feed.

Individually the result was very close, with two of the best hemp anglers around - Bourne's Malcolm Payne and Peterborough's Pete Jayes both weighing more than 14lbs. Van Den Eynde's Wayne Swinscoe was just behind the leading pair.

Mark One B took the team honours, with Peterborough Blue and Van Den Eynde in equal second.

Our Stanjay Aggressor team, who had been clear in second place, could only manage equal 11th on the day and have now dropped to third overall behind Van Den Eynde and Mark One B.

RESULT (Individual): 1 Malcolm Payne Bourne Green 14lb 12oz, 2 Pete Jayes Peterborough Red 14lb 8oz, 3 Wayne Swinscoe Van Den Eynde 14lb 1.5oz.

Teams: 1 Mark One B 26pts, 2= Peterborough Blue/Van Den Eynde 27pts, 4 Peterborough Red 31pts, 5 Bourne Green 33pts, 6= Mark One A, Browning Stanjay Red/Wades Black 37pts.

Head Fen Final Match

THE lake fished better on day two - and those who took the top places then dominated the final positions.
