The Dams and Lock Summer league kicked into action in fine style on the Birmingham-Fazeley Canal with 72 anglers turning out and a winning weight of over 15lb.

Fishing peg 156 at Erdington, Nigel Clayton pole-fished caster and worm and caught skimmers and bream for 15-7-2. That was the only double figure weight, but there’s was good sport elsewhere with over 8lb required to get you into the top six. Maver Tipton Van den Eynde Red lead the league, from Browning Lifestyle Red.
