Bronson Arme recorded a personal best at Lake View Fishery to win the Sunday Open last weekend.
His haul of 160lb 3oz, taken from peg two on stream, left him well clear of Keith Daws who took a super weight of 113lb as four of the 12 entrants record 100lb-plus weights.
* Nottinghamshire anglers Scott Robinson and Steve Winter became the latest qualifiers for the Middy Xtreme Summer Series final on Saturday and Sunday, September 9 and 10.
Fourth place was good enough for Robinson to book his place at last Wednesday’s qualifier, with a haul of 59lb 6oz from peg one on stream.
Mansfield angler Tom Calladine won the match, held in incessant rain, with 87lb 1oz from peg 15 on river.
Winter weighed in with a bumper haul of 113lb from lagoon peg four, but he was still pipped to the top prize by Ken Daws who took 115lb exactly from peg 15 on marina.
