It was a tale of the two Garys at Jeagor Farm Lakes on Saturday.

Anglers were once again judged on their catches of both carp and silvers in separate matches.

Gary Harrison took first in the silver fish match with a 22lb 9oz haul from Peg 12. He beat the other Gary - Cole - into second spot. Cole amassed 18lb 5oz from Peg 5.

Third spot went to Stuart harrison (Peg 16) with 19lb 13oz.

The top two placings were reversed in the carp-only match with Gary Cole coming out on top on Peg 5 with a 39lb 2oz bag. Gary Harrison, on Peg 12, tipped the scales with 34lb 10oz to grab second.

Stuart Harrison was in third spot again from Peg 16, recording 23lb 5oz.

Next matches at the venue are on Sunday (April 19) and May 2.
