12 anglers fished the John Smith Trophy match at Drayton St.Leonard from 8am to 1pm. Eventual winner was Bryan Ball from Peg 13 who had an eventful day hooking 3 "proper" chub on pole fished red maggot and losing all 3 despite increasing the breaking strain of his hooklength after each fish was lost! In desperation Bryan put out a leger rod fishing worm and managed to finally put a chub in his keepnet for a total weight of 4lb 3oz. Second was Julian Rayment with 2lb 9oz, third was Kevin Smith with 1lb 14oz and fourth was Roy Barber with 1lb 4oz.
