A nice dry day, and a gentle breeze for the first hour of the match, but the wind picked up considerably after 12 noon pretty much spoiling the long pole lines.
The majority of fish were caught during the first third of the match today, with things slowing up as the wind picked up as the day went on.
James Woodrow won the Queensberry Water section and the overall match with 47lb+ of ide, caught from the off on long pole / maggot.
Mick Slater just pipped Steve Royle by 4oz to take second place with carp and skimmers for 34lb 12oz, Steve Royle catching a few carp, skimmers and ide for 3rd with 34lb 8oz
