Birmingham Fazeley Canal fish-a-chuck action

It was fish-a-chuck action for most of the competitors taking part in the latest event on the Birmingham Fazeley Canal, with the top five sharing almost 100lb of silverfish between them.

Leading the frantic action from start to finish was Ian Haddon, who eventually placed 29lb 8oz on the scales to record victory. After drawing peg 38 at Curdworth, he used pole and breadpunch for a mixture of roach and skimmers.

Runner up Dave Freestone was also kept busy and managed to place 25lb 14oz in the net come the final whistle.
