The fish were in a very obliging mood for this the last of the Wychavon Championship qualifying matches before this years final on the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Coming out on top was Evesham regular Ian Sutherland, who caught a surprise net of chub on maggot feeder tactics from peg 83. Ian cast into the main flow two thirds of the way across the river, and included fish to 3lb in his net for a 13-8-0 total.
Runner up was Middy backed ace, Joe Oakes from peg 15. Joe caught quality roach on hempseed fished on the long pole, for a 12-3-0 finish.
Third placed Tony Skinner included one of Evesham’s famous barbel in his net from peg 85. Tony caught the 9lb fish on maggot feeder tactics, and added a host of smaller fish to his bag for a total weight of 11-13-0.
