A good flush-through saw the River Welland through the Deepings in cracking form for the latest Deeping St James Angling Club match.

Several anglers took roach to 1lb 6oz.

The winner was Alan Jopling, who caught on bread-punch to put 14lb 4 oz to the scales.

Not too far behind in second place was Paul Dotchin, who put 11lb 11oz to the scales, again all roach taken on bread.

Then came Ivan Marriott, who finished in third place with 8lb 8oz.
