Lake View Fishing: Parnell pips Searle to final spot

Wednesday qualifier Roger Parnell EMN-171031-180506002

Roger Parnell and John Shellard became the latest anglers to qualify for the Middy-Adrenaline Baits Winter Series Final after topping last week’s qualifiers.

Parnell won a very tight match at Lake View Fishery last Wednesday, his 67lb 4oz haul from river peg 20 trumping Andy Searle by less than two pounds.

John Shellard won match 14 in the winter-long series EMN-171031-180519002

Shellard was given a little more breathing space on Saturday as his 62lb total, caught from peg 15 on the canal lake, finished almost seven pounds clear of runner-up Jason Sahall.

Searle was again in the mix, but again just missed out in third place.

* As temperatures began to fall on Sunday, weights were down for anglers fishing the Dynamite Baits-sponsored open match.

Bronson Arme topped a small eight-man field with 38lb 12oz, pipping runner-up Steve Haywood by less than a pound.
