Local Knowledge pays dividends on the Don


River Don Press release 2017

Extra water had lowered the water temperature on the eight RiverFest qualifier on the river Don. The river still fished well though with eight double figure weights spread over the three zones.

River Don regular Paul Goulding drew end peg 60 (peg 1 at Sprotborough) and landed 22-8-0. This weight was made up with a 5lb bream and skimmers, caught on a groundbait feeder.

Second place went to match organiser Steve Lowther at peg 40 on the Viaducts section with 13-7-0 of hybrids and perch on groundbait feeder.

Third, with 11-6-0 of skimmers, again on the feeder was Mark Turner at peg 59 on the Sprotborough length.

Fourth was Nicky Crooks at peg 9 on the Earth Centre section with 10-5-0 of pole caught skimmers, perch and roach.

Special thanks go to Steve Lowther and his team for running a very well organised qualifier.
