As expected, a very low and gin clear river, coupled with bright sunshine made this qualifier a difficult match for most. There were still some very good weights taken though and a feature of the match was the mix of different species caught by the anglers who main framed.

Lee Harries made use of a good draw at peg 75 catching from the off to win the match comfortably with 20-10-0 of barbel, caught on halibut pellet feeder.

Two swims upstream at peg GM1, Pete Sturmey fished with waggler and maggot to take a 15-10-0 catch of chub.

Third in the match was Ian Ward with 13-9-0 of dace, caught on a long whip and maggot from peg 105.

Fourth and winning a qualifying place at the £13,000 top prize in November was Brian Jones at peg 29 with 12-0-0 of maggot feeder caught chub.

Dave Holland came in fifth with 10-8-0 from peg 7 and sixth place went to the ever-consistent Brian Rigby with 10-6-0 of dace from peg 25.

The last qualifying place went to Steve Clark with 9-11-0 of roach from peg 63.

Special thanks go to the KDAA team for organising a very well run qualifier, along with Dave Harrell for his continued efforts with the contest.
