Worker wins with just a little bit of luck

Angling with Stan and Fizz


DESPITE several days of fantastic weather, catching at Cromwell Lake was difficult in Saturday’s match.

He had one bit of luck though when Amer Jawad, who finished second, lost a top kit on a good fish eventually landing it after the match from someone else’s peg. Matt Roberts finished third.

RESULT: 1, Graeme Worker Fox Match Stanjay 22lb 14oz; 2, Amer Jawad 16lb 10oz; 3, Matt Roberts Fox Match Stanjay 9lb 12oz.
