Report:
Thirty minutes into the match another storm hit making fishing very difficult, but in spite of this all anglers caught fish (although not all weighed in).

Martin Checkley, on his first Nisa Feeders Open, drew favoured peg 19 and caught three early carp on pole from “the track” before the wind made things impossible. A switch to bomb and alternating corn and bread kept the odd fish coming throughout the match to end with 46-10 for a clear win.

Tony Lamb (peg 6) and Stu Johnstone (peg 2) tied for second place each with 25-04. Tony caught his fish dobbing bread at first then on corn on the same line. Stu caught on pellet, across to the island before the storm then in the margin.
