The Rutlander club angler won a total of £297 after drawing golden peg one on the reef lake which was worth £150. He also picked up £50 as match winner, plus further prize money of £97.

Tom caught 67lb 6oz off peg one on the reef pool, catching mainly carp and F1s on pellet down the track and across.

Martin Thackery just lost out on the golden peg on the lagoon lake when Kev Kania beat him by 2lb.
