Chris Hale and Steve Haywood became the latest anglers to qualify for the Middy MX Luggage Spring/Summer Series two-day final at Lake View Fishery in August.
Hale topped a day of low weights at Wednesday’s qualifiers, while Haywood pipped Sean Huggins by just two ounces, from a total haul of 75lb, on Saturday.
Keith Daws earned a £120 bonus for winning Sunday’s open match from the golden peg on river.
