Carl Sutton and Paul Taylor were the latest anglers to qualify for the Middy MX Luggage Autumn/Winter series final at Lake View Fishery in March.
Sutton finished fifth in a close-fought qualifier last Wednesday, with his haul of 35lb, just 10 pounds behind match winner Andy Bailey.
The top seven places all went to anglers drawn on river pegs, with weights down on stream where Wayne Smith won the lake with 30lb.
On Saturday, sixth place was good enough to reach the final as Taylor caught 33lb from canal peg 18.
All of the top eight anglers caught from the canal pool, with Phil Morris topping the leaderboard with 77lb from peg eight.
Bob Murray was lake winner on serpent, a way back with 17lb.
