The 10th match of the 2009 LEVAS Championship was held on a cool day at Boddington Reservoir, when it rained much of the first part of the match.
Water levels were very low and most anglers found bites hard to find, although everyone managed to catch carp.
Top weight was taken by Adam Chester (peg 81) with a 20 carp catch weighing 131 lbs. Adam fished banded pellet on bomb over loose fed pellet at 30 yards, and caught well throughout the latter stages of the match.
Runner up Carl Henrick (peg 82) fished method feeder at 50 yards for his 87 lb 4 oz, as did third placed (Junior Member) George Rigby (peg 73) for his 81 lb.
Steve Wilcock (peg 76) landed 79 lb on “tea bag” and pellet, Rob Henrick (peg 83) had 76 lb 8 oz on method feeder, Dave Kent (peg 79) next with 66 lb 8 oz (on feeder and pole).
Moving into the second half of the 2009-2010 LEVAS Championships, Carl Henrick enhanced his lead (now on 142 points). The other top anglers are by Dave Kent (120), John Adamson (115), Jake Hemmings (113), Paul Richardson (109).
