Lakeview Fishery: Bob makes scorching start to Summer League

Have your say

The start of Lakeview’s Summer League promised a close-fought season after a thrilling opening match.

Bob Greenbury set the scene with a 100lb-plus bag. Fishing maggot across to the island he caught 104lb from peg 29.

At the other end of the lake, Dave Sewell must have thought he could be the winner with 92lb using pellet down the margin method, and Roger Holmes, in third with 80lb, must have had similar thoughts.

Five more anglers beat the 50lb mark on a prolific season opener, but it was Bob who took the honours and the points to head the early league standings.
