Saturday July 17th
Warwickshire Avon – Evesham Town Waters and Hampton Ferry
Roach winner for Richie!
Strong winds and a very clear river again made life difficult for competitors in the latest Abu Garcia Wychavon Championship qualifier at Evesham but in form Richie Reynolds (Quorn VDE) made a mockery of the conditions to run out a comfortable winner from unfancied Peg 58.
Working with lightly shot pole rigs from 0.30g to 1g and Richie fed steadily with hemp and tares from the off and used the same on the hook to land roach up to the 10oz mark for a 13-15-0 total.
Second place went to a more fancied swim in the form of Peg 35 where Dave Partridge (Warwick) worked hard with a waggler and bronze maggots fished well across the river for a good net of small chub and a 10-2-0 total.
Third was Steve Pierpoint (WB Clarke) from Peg 22, one below the bridge, with 6-9-0 of hemp caught roach and fourth was Ian Shepherd with another hemp caught roach bag of 6-3-0 from Peg 1. Making up the frame with 6-2-0 of hemp roach from Peg 30 was Alex Powell.
Qualifiers: Steve Pierpoint, Dave Partridge, Leigh Gardener
