LAST weekend saw two Clubs on RDAA waters with Tilehurst Royal British Legion on Beat Five of the Kennet and Prospect on the Sonning River section of the Thames, writes Alan Hughes.

TRBLAS fished Beat Five for their Round Five of the Points Trophy.

The odds were stacked against the anglers as the river was colouring up and rose slowly during the course of the day.

Taking the top spot was Simon Couling, who drew the concrete blocks swim and had 18 fish for 9lbs 14ozs which included a barbel of 7lbs 2ozs.

In second place was Andy Chapman who was drawn on the sedges peg just below Berkeley Avenue bridge.

He had 3lbs 12ozs of roach and perch and caught on the feeder or the float.

In third spot was Chris Humphreys, who was the peg above the bridge and had 3lbs 9ozs of silvers caught also on the float and feeder.

Prospect’s visit to Sonning found the river with some flow back in it and the anglers were hoping for a fruitful day.

Match secretary Colin Day took the honours with 8lbs 11ozs of roach, perch and skimmers.

Second spot was claimed by Mick Simmons, who had a mainly quality roach net which consisted of fish up to 12ozs to weigh in 6lbs 14ozs.

Completing the top trio was Gerry Lucas with 3lbs 12ozs of silvers.

Away from RDAA waters Reading Fishing Club fished their section of the Thames at Child Beale and used the top field section of the venue.

George Callaghan won his first club match of the season with 14lbs 12ozs.

Steve Lewis took second place with 13lbs 14ozs, and Richard Rosinski was third with 11lbs 8ozs.
