Twenty-six Joe’s Road/Sudbury Angling Club anglers travelled to Little Braxted to fish Parfield Lake at Colman’s Cottage Fisheries, in rain and wind.
Fishing conditions were difficult and expected big weights were dramatically reduced, possibly due to the conditions on the day.
Results: 1 Rod Adams 43lb 10oz; 2 Sid Turner 35lb; 3 Ken Noble 34lb; 4 Kev Forster 30lb.
The joint clubs run a points system with the winner gaining one point and the second two points, up to the number of anglers fishing.

A table will be published every five weeks.
