Thursdays evening match showed more promise than it produced, with overcast skies and no flow everybody was expecting the bream to feed, the weights looked good but the bream didnt feed until late into the evening, the anglers put their lights on around 8.15pm, yet some anglers couldnt catch untill after 9.30pm, which didnt leave a lot of time left, this was probably due to the clear water.
Top rod on the night was Alan Healey with 17lb 10oz, all bream caught on a groundbait feeder and maggot. Pete Ellis was second with 16lb 4oz of bream and roach on a pole with groundbait and maggot and Jason Bird was third with 13lb 13oz, again roach and bream on the pole. Fourth was Dean Malin with 11lb 11oz, this time on the pole and not the feeder. Merv Sivell was 5th with 8lb 6oz and Dave Clutterbuck had the only roach catch of the night with 8lb 3oz.
