Rodgers wins first round of UK Champs

Middy’s Mark Rodger has won with first round of the UK Champs at Lindholme Lakes.

The Bag ‘Em Baits ace fished shallow with pellet to take 76kg 900 of F1s from peg 4 on unfancied Laurels Lake.

Mark finished over 5kg in front of AT columnist Steve Ringer to scoop the £1,000 top prize who caught 71kg of carp and F1s from Oasis Lake.
