MARK Ling proved to be king of the river when Diss Angling Club had its match on the river on September 26.
Fishing from peg nine Ling caught early and reaped the rewards from it. The swim dried up for him during the middle of the match but with a good final hour Mark brought 5lb 12.5 to the scales.
Second on the day went to Andrew Mears. Mears was bite less for the first three and a half hours of the match but then they switched on, giving Mears a bite a chuck for the remainder of the match. Mears' final weight was 4lb 9.5. Third on the day went to Bill Crisp with 3lb 14.
The Eric Madgett Memorial was fished on September 27 on Diss Mere. With 12 anglers all hoping for rich pickings from the Mere which has been in good form all season yet again it didn't leave those who made it down.
George Wilby once again drew laters and set about the roach, rudd and skimmer which inhabit the area. With bites coming regularly Wilby made a good winning weight of 18lb 14.
Second went to Peter Wall who fished from prolific peg three. Wall caught slivers and brought 16lb 15 to the scales. Third on the day went to Keith Rodwell with 14lb 13.

Eye Ponds new side was the venue for the mid week match.
On a day when the fish did not show, it was left down to one man to come out on top with the only bag of fish to be caught in the match. Barry Day cleaned up with just 1lb 8 on a very hard day at Eye.
