The Decoy Lakes Open on the Yew Pool saw Dan Major top a small, but very experienced field from peg 15 with 133lb 6oz. He fished big baits on the long pole line then into the margins, netting carp to double figures. Runner-up was Lee Marlow on 106lb 6oz and then came Bas Brighton with 98lb 10oz.


Fenland Rods were on the Elm Pool at Decoy and as usual the middle order pegs produced the better weights with Mac Campbell topping the field with a very respectable 173lb 7oz.

Campbell drew peg 16 and caught most of his fish on a short pole line feeding and fishing sweetcorn.

Kevin Lee was second with 167lb followed by Dennis Sambridge (147lb 1oz) and Les Bedford (138lb 7oz).
