The river was still very low and clear for the fourth Ladies Championship and the ladies soon realised they were in for a tough day after very little was caught in the first hour.
Just like in the junior and intermediate event some of the ladies went all out for barbel while others tried to winkle out everything they could with pole gear.      
Last year’s champion Samantha Sim proved her class once more by winning again and picking up the £500 top prize, this time with a much lower weight of 3-6-0 of roach and perch from Peg 11. Second place and £300 went to Kim Merry with 3-2-0 of perch and eels and third, winning £200 was Rita Bell with 2-13-0 of small fish.
