Draw time arrived and Lordy picked out peg 26 in the middle of the far bank. Matt drew peg 29 so he and Lordy were in the same section. Right from the start it was obvious that the fishing was going to be difficult. What had worked a few weeks ago now did no good at all and all Lordy managed on the 6m line with worm was 2 perch for 1lb 6oz. However, he also put out the feeder with dead maggot and had a carp at the beginning and a carp at the end for 10lb. He also lost a very big eel right at the death and weighed in with 11lb 6oz. This won the mini section and the bankside section and so for the first time in 47 years of angling Lordy finally managed to win a league tournament - whoopee!
