Prolific angler Steve Haywood’s hot streak continued as he dominated the week at lake View Fishery.
The in-form Middy-backed angler won three matches in a row, taking more than a ton on each.
He landed a whopping total weight of 160lb to win last Wednesday’s Summer Series qualifier and repeated the trick at Saturday’s qualifier, taking 123lb.
Having already booked his place, the qualifying spots for September’s final went to Jimmy Fowkes who finished third on Saturday with 112lb, and Melton junior Chris Randall who was sixth on Wednesday with 68lb.
Haywood then took his third win, all from different pools, with 111lb at the Sunday Open match.
