A 24-hour session at Linear Fisheries gave Cyrus Richards and James McCartney an 18-fish haul.
Cyrus, whose biggest fish of the trip weighed 24lb, said: “It was a cracking 24 hours, Linear is by far the best day-ticket water in the country.
“I was fishing 80 yards out over a lovely silt patch just in front of some gravel, using 15mm CC Moore Equinox boilies, hemp and corn as my spod mix. After putting roughly 20 spods out to start with, the trap was set. I had my first take within 20 minutes! Then my second not long after, followed by a double take. By this time James had already had five fish himself!”
