      Thats a proper weight for the winner, second is non too tawdry either, I assume the river was carrying a touch of colour, what did the winners bag consist of.

              I fished a couple of qualifiers last year and the winning weights were never above 10lb (out of 70-80 anglers) ... so that is a fantastic weight!

                We are used to large weights from commercials but it shouldn't distract from what is a huge Warwickshire Avon weight.

                Back up weights outstanding for the venue too.

                I wonder how long it will be before we see the like again ?

                Likely was a combination of fish with their guard down on the very first day of the season, plus a bit of colour and flow in the river at the same time.

                      well done Leigh - lovely chap who's always there or thereabouts at Evesham.
                      a record for 24 hours only!

                      last year the river was desperately low and clear all season ..... bit different at the moment!

                          They drop downstream from the wier pooll and pleasure garden stretch above after there's been large floods - it was 6ft up a month ago and the writing was on the wall. it happened after the last big floods in 2008, when pegs 1 & 2 won everything all summer. None of us thought tht these weights would pop up, right guy on right day.
