Things are really picking up on the commercials as illustrated by the big Saturday open match at Tunnel Barn Farm which attracted 62 anglers and produced no less than 13 ton-up weights.

Topping the field was serial venue winner Pete Rice, who fished caster through sloppy groundbait at just two metres for a lovely 130-13-0 net of roach, skimmers and barbel from peg 7 on House Pool 1. It was only just enough though, Martin Greene weighing in 129-8-0 and Stu Palser 127-14-0.Pic caption: House Pool where Pete Rice won from. The event produced 13 ton-up weights.
