Once again five anglers walked the track to Hoxne's match pegs and Bill Davies came away as the day's winner but lost the series to Barry Day, who claimed the series win.
Davies had to wait just 40 minutes for his only bait of the match and made no mistake in teasing his winning fish to the net. Davies claimed the win with a pike which weighed 7lb 7oz.
