Results Day One

First day of Festival - Railway fished, slightly luck of draw and patchy elsewhere!  

Lake results and pics to follow.  Ray King (Barford Tackle) was top weight on the day on Railway from peg 20 and fished tight tot he island with a method or shotgun feeder with soaked 2mm fishery pellet with 8mm pellet on the hook.  He caught 59 fish on the feeders and one shallow.  Adam Major was 2nd on the lake with 82 - 8 and caught a lot of fish int he last 90mins down the edge on corn.

Have put the first page of the table up and you can click here  to see it.
