Dirk does the business in difficult conditions
Dirk Williams was the only one to have a decent weight and this was only to an excellent final hour.
Fishing maggot on river peg 12 he finished as winner with 41lbs way ahead of the rest.
Second on the lake was Roy Toulson on peg 20 with 26lbs made up of a couple of good mirror’s and F1’s.
On stream it was the same story but John Bayliss came in first on the lake from peg 1 with 27lbs, giving him a section win.
Second on the lake was Martin Quilter on peg 20 with just 18lbs.
The other section winner was Chris Shore with 12 from peg 10.
Last Wednesday, Micky West continued with his good form with another match win.
Fishing peg 21 on Marina he found both ide and carp feeding throughout the match and would have had more than 48lbs had the gusting wind been less disruptive.
On the opposite bank Roy Toulson was not far behind with 39lbs from peg 9 where he caught mainly ide which tended to move in and out of his peg giving him long periods without a fish.
On Serpent it was a close match on the lake with Dirk Williams coming out top with 45lbs from peg 2 where he caught a lot of small F1’s on maggot close in.
Second on the lake was Ian Donaldson on peg 21 with 42lbs and third and winning his section was Mark Bowles with 40lbs from peg 2.
On Lagoon fish were hard to find although Gary Smith on golden peg 4 thought he was in for a bumper pay out but he lost time losing some rigs which probably cost him the match, but he finished first on the lake with 44lbs.
Second on the lake was Mick Hempstock on peg 22 who caught late on finishing with 28lbs.
Wayne Smith qualified for the Map Elite final on Sunday.
On Saturday he also booked his place in the Middy MX Luggage Winter/Spring final with a second first-place finish at Lake View Fisheries.
