George Wilby showed enough class to come out on top, when he fished caster on the pole.

Wilby had a bag of all roach to finish with 7lb 15oz, five ounces ahead of second.

Keith Rodwell had a rare showing in the places. Fishing red maggot on a size 20 hook did the trick for Rodwell, giving Keith 7lb 10oz. Third place went to John Cole.
