Newcomer Dale Lynch became the second fisherman to qualify for the £4,000 Middy final at Lakeview Fishery on Saturday.
Dale landed a fantastic weight of 148lb 13oz, catching his fish off the canal pool’s peg three on maggot. His haul included many F1s and carp which filled three nets.
Jason Farmery came second with a weight of 96lb 15oz, again catching down the track and across for mirrors, skimmers, F1s, and bream on maggot.
Darren Bamford was the lucky landing net winner of the week, sponsored by Middy.
