The decision to use the deeper pegs ,for our second Junior event, proved right, as some nice bags of fish were landed by our enthusiastic younger members.Adam was top weight with a lovely net of skimmer bream caught on the pole on red maggots of peg P. Second ,on the next peg Q, was younger of the Scott brothers ,Tom with a similar bag taken on a 4mtr. whip. In 3rd place on peg N was Tyler with another bream net taken on the long pole, Back up weights were roach and perch Brooke, unluckily, lost a winning carp after a 10 min battle on a whip.The 3 hour event was fished in blazing sunny conditions.The current league table ,with , one match remaining is a dead heat for 1st spot, on 21 points, between Adam  Tom ,and Tyler. Many thanks to all the helpers and to Summerlands Tackle for their generous help with prizes.
