Kennet and Avon Canal produces 400lb of fish in big match

The latest Angling Trust Winter League round on the Kennet and Avon canal proved the venue is in fine condition with the field sharing almost 400lb of fish between them!

Roach, perch and bream fed in force during the match, and individual winner on the day Gary Etheridge was able to fool lots of hand-sized skimmers and a bonus tench on maggot and worm for 16lb 12oz.

Backing weights were equally impressive, with double figures required to make the top eight.
