Second was Roger Biddle, who caught 7lb 10oz on maggot, and third was Alan Jopling with 6lb 4oz.

He drew well and started the match across to the island but was not finding many fish willing to feed.
He had better luck though coming in a little shorter fishing pellet shallow.
Second with 100lb 14oz was Andy Rose, who fished a variety of methods to keep the fish coming all day. In third place with 87lb 14oz was Stephen English.
