In-form angler Bronson Arme enjoyed another prolific week at Lake View Fishery with two match wins and a golden peg bonus.
Arme took a combined weight of more than 300lb in his two wins, winning Sunday’s Open with 153lb, as well as last Wednesday’s Summer Series qualifier with a weight just a few ounces shy of 150lb.
He picked up a £60 golden peg bonus for the lagoon pool, while third-placed Bob Greenbury also earned a bonus for coming out on top of the marina weights after drawing the golden peg.
With Arme already qualified, the place in the final went to runner-up Roger Parnell.
Seam Huggins topped the scales at Saturday’s qualifying match with 87lb, less than three pounds ahead of runner-up Andy Searle.
The qualifying spot went to ninth-placed finisher Tony Blackwell, from Loughborough, who netted 42lb 13oz.
