The Severn at Shrewsbury was the reserve venue used to replace a high River Dee. The river was running low and clear and a temperature drop of three degrees in four days didn’t bode well.

One man not complaining though was match winner Martin Challenger down at peg 89, where he recorded 16-10-0 of roach and dace on waggler and maggot tactics.

Second place and an A Zone win went to Mike Dench with 15-2-0 of chub and dace on long whip tactics from peg 45.

B Zone was a close run affair and was won on peg 65 by Lee Harries with 12-6-0 of roach.
