The Colne at Rickmansworth had good flow and colour and looked in excellent condition for round four of the championship series, and, although it wasn’t a spectacular match, there were bites to be had for everyone. Doug Read won the match with 13-7-0, a catch which included a bream of 5-13-0 which he caught on single maggot and bomb tactics, and also a lovely 5-9-0 chub which fell to triple maggot and crumb feeder. Second spot went to Keith Gibson who had a mixed bag of 10-8-0 on the stick float from the downstream disabled peg, and third was Gary Bloomfield with 6-9-0 with another mixed catch taken on the stick. Section winners were Perry Fairclough, Ryan Fairclough and Frank Bursnall. Ryan also won the specimen with a nice perch of 1-5-0.
