It’s been a very busy time over at Rookery Waters with both the Jay Lake and Magpie Pool producing some fine sport.
In the Wednesday Over 60s match it was the consistent John Belshaw leading the way on the Jay Lake with 101lb 4oz taken from peg 19 fishing pellet and sweetcorn.
Runner-up was Roy Whincup with 79lb 8oz, followed by Chris Saunders on 69lb 14oz.
The Thursday £1,000 qualifier was also fished on the Jay Lake and on his very first outing of the season Vinny Easy made no mistake from peg 28 to win with 108lb 12oz of carp. Runner-up from peg 11 was Kev Turner with 96lb 10oz, then came Tony Dawson with 83lb 8oz.
In the Saturday £1,000 qualifier on the Magpie, Mark Pollard’s 151lb 12oz taken shallow with meat proved just enough to see off his nearest rivals.
Next came England ladies star Abbi Kendall with 151lb 8oz then Steve Clarke on 147lb 10oz.
