The fourth round of the league took place on Sunday 11th October back on the Canal Lake. Lordy drew peg 47 which has a very shallow far bank. Fishing double caster on a size 18 carp feeder hook with 0.13 power line and a Drennan crystal dibber float produced a perch of about 1lb within the first minute but fish were hard to find thereafter. He hooked and landed one of the small barbel and a couple of small skimmer bream before he decided to fish off to his right hand margin at about 5m. This produced a small tench (which was nice) on double caster. As he was fishing he heard one angler from the other side say he was catching on pellet. He switched immediately to a 6mm Dynamite baits Pro Expander and was rewarded with a small carp. He had to wait for the bites and found that feeding had to be very sparse or not at all but he ended up with four carp from the edge and a decent bream from the far bank to finish with 17lb 9oz. This gave him 3rd place overall but, more importantly, first place in his section.
