DISS Angling Club's Barry Day is really making a name for himself in his first season fishing with the club.

Once again Barry took the honours at Eye pond's new side. Day took a mixed bag of fish and finished with 8lb 2½oz.

Second went to Colin Lea who fished the pole for his bag which went 7lb 1½oz. Third on the day was Duggie Burrows with 4lb.

Controversy hit the draw at Saturday's match on the Mere in Diss when not enough pegs were put in the bag. This, in turn, meant eyebrows were raised and a re-draw was called for to stop any cheating.

Robert Foulger didn't draw as well second time round but this never stopped him going all the way and taking first place with a cracking bag of crucians, roach and two goldfish.

Robert finished with a healthy bag of 28lb 9oz. Steve Harold took second place with his bag of roach taken on hemp from hot peg 19. Steve weighed in 17lb 12oz but believed 20lb plus was easily reachable if he had taken the time to prepare his own bait rather than using tinned hemp. Third was Stephen Edwards with 16lb ½oz.

Andrew Mears laid claim to his first cup of the season when he took the Twist Cup at Hoxne. Mears scratched about for his winning weight of 3lb 15oz. Second and the final place of the day went to Keith Rodwell, who weighed in 2lb 15½oz of waggler-caught silver fish.

Don't miss out on this year's outing match at Taswood's cinnamon lake. It's being held on Sunday, July 27, draw is at 9am, fishing 10am-4pm. To book phone Andrew on 07786 041177.
