Webb’s AC were on the Magpie Pool at Rookery Waters on Sunday but unfortunately it was something of a struggle after an overnight frost.

Matchwinner Mick Linnell was one of those finding it tough going in the first half of the day, but a switch to a waggler and red maggot approach saw him romp home with 45lb 7oz. Ken Allum was second on 31lb 10oz and Andy Perry third on 18lb 4oz.


Anglers are also finding conditions hard to overcome at Haddon Lodge,
