England snub brings right result for duo; Hook LINE AND SINKER.

Byline: GARETH PURNELL

MATCH anglers who opted to fish the Sonu Baits Individual Championships at Woodland View instead of watching the England game against Germany were rewarded with some fantastic fishing, with the top five all weighing in over 180lb and no-one less than 90lb.

It was a record-breaking match for the Hadley fishery, with two anglers taking more than 270lb to the scales topped by Shirleybased angling coach Ian Boden, with a new venue record of 285-5-0. Ian drew peg 13 on High Pool where he fished pellets and corn down the edge for carp to 10lb.

Second-placed Ian Wood also broke the venue record with 275-6-0 from Deans Pool.

REPORTS have been quite sketchy on the form of the River Severn since the season opened on June 16, but I have heard of chub to 5lb 8oz coming out to stick float and maggot at Pershore, and barbel to nearly 11lb on stick float and casters at Arley.

Down on the lower river, Alan's Fishing Tackle in Worcester advised me to stay off the main river and fish the Teme instead. They recommend the Leogh area, where a caster and hemp feeder approach is accounting for bags of chub up to 60lb and the odd barbel to double figures.

BARSTON Lakes hosted the Total-FishingClub.com Championships on Saturday and it produced a really tight match with everyone taking a decent weight to the scales and an average of 37lb.

Top of the pile was Roland Lucsas, who drew peg 109 where he weighed in 77-11-0.

SHIRLEY angler Mark Johnson has been left devastated after losing more than pounds 3,000 worth of match fishing gear to thieves.

Mark, 32, had been competing in the UK Champs but returned home from work on June 24 to find his garage had been forced.

Items stolen include a Rive XT500 seatbox with the black plate underneath missing and containing 300 pole rigs, two Daiwa TDR 3012 reels, a Garbolino rod sleeve containing two Daiwa Tournament 10/11ft feeder rods and a Preston mini float road with Caldia 2500 reel.

ENGLAND'S match anglers flew the flag proudly by taking gold in the world coarse fishing championships in Spain.

Led by Birmingham's Mark Downes, the team finished first on day one and second on day two to see off Italy and Spain.
