Steve Davis and Matt Smith became the latest anglers to qualify for this month’s two-day Summer series final at lake View Fishery.
Davis finished second behind Ken Daws at last Wednesday’s qualifier for the Middy MX Luggage Spring/Summer Series final, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday, August 24 and 25.
He finished 25lb behind clear winner Daws who landed 102lb from peg 19 on canal.
Smith, meanwhile, brought 47lb to the scales, which was good enough for Saturday’s qualifying place despite finishing only 16th in the match itself.
The match was won by Jimmy Fowkes who caught a huge haul of 126lb from golden peg 22 on lagoon to earn an £80 bonus.
Carl Sutton was also in the money at the Sunday Open as he landed the top weight on stream of 65lb from golden peg 18 to take home an extra £70.
Sutton was fifth overall as the top four weights all went to anglers on river, Jack Danby winning with 94lb from peg 10.
