Father and son Keith and Ken Daws stole the show at Lakeview Fishery last weekend with two great wins.
Keith won Saturday’s Middy £4,000 qualifier to reach September’s final after catching well all day. He landed skimmers, carp, F1s and the odd barbel for a total haul of 106lb 7oz, catching on maggot down the track and margins.
Bob Murray won the weekly Middy landing net prize, and Scott Robinson was this month’s winner of the Middy 4GS rod.
Top five: 1 Keith Daws (LV Select) 106lb 7oz (peg 21), 2 Bob Greenbury (Drennan) 97lb 2oz (peg 5), 3 John Baker (Melton Ang) 94lb 13oz (peg 3), 4 Luke Bamford 87lb 1oz (peg 11), 5 Steve Haywood (Middy) 82lb 4oz (peg 23).
* Ken took centre stage at the Sunday Open match, winning with an excellent weight of 157lb 11oz off serpent peg nine.
The more sheltered lake of Serpent proved the more favourable on a gusty morning but four anglers topped the ton barrier.
Ken fished down the margins and track, feeding live maggot and using maggot on the hook to catch mainly carp and F1s.

* Having already qualified for the Middy final, Jamie Adcock was lucky to jump to first place at last Wednesday’s qualifier with 113lb 10oz after Scott Robinson was knocked back on one his nets by 5lb 10oz, giving him 112lb.
Jamie caught mainly carp, a few barbel and F1s on pellet and maggot by fishing down the track and over.
Dean Wright, who finished sixth, qualified for the final with the top five all having previously qualified.
