Lakeview Select angler Bronson Arme had a match to remember last Wednesday as he won the Middy Summer Series qualifier from golden peg 23.
Arme caught just shy of 100lb from the lagoon pool to net a £70 bonus and a place in the Middy Final on Saturday, September 17.
He pipped runner-up Steve Haywood (Middy) by just 3lb, while Ken Daws (Sensas) was just a further pound behind in a tight top three, taking top weight from the canal pool with 95lb 4oz from peg 23.
Brian Greenbury (Dynamite) topped Saturday’s qualifying match, landing 89lb 4oz from peg 20 on the river pool, with Grantham angler Steven Pretty finishing second with 80lb 13oz from peg 16.
