Bream dream for Barry 2018

An incredible match on the River Thames at Reading saw the top four anglers weigh in over 100lb and a new record weight for the competition.

Match winner Barry Chapman set a new high and booked himself a place in the final with a 156-14-0 catch of bream.

Next door to Barry, Patrick Newman also had a day to remember and missed out by just a couple of good fish. His 145-12-0 total beat competition creator Dave Harrell, who took third place overall with 135-13-0 further downstream.

Another ton-up catch went to Trevor Baker, who weighed 108-11-0 of bream on the other side of the winner.

A section winner with a superb 25-3-0 catch of pole caught roach was Hadrian Whittle and C Zone winner was Adam Durnford with 17-8-0 of roach.
