Slider King Simon Pavey scored a spectacular win on a very difficult river Thames at Windsor on Sunday. With the river running fast and swirling in places, few would have chosen to fish the slider in such challenging conditions, but once again he demonstrated how devastating this often-overlooked method can be in the right hands. Simon fed caster laced balls of groundbait by hand at twenty yards and fished a maggot hookbait to tempt 19-5-0 of quality Thames roach, a wonderful days fishing on a natural venue and a similar weight to which he won last years corresponding match here using the same tactics. Second place went to Glen Briggs who fished the pole to finish with 13-8-0 of mainly quality roach. Glen caught on maggot over hemp and caster laced groundbait and soil and had to fish a 2g float in eight feet of water to get his presentation right such was the strength of the flow. Third place went to James Fletcher who had 7-6-0 of quality roach and also caught on the pole with maggot over caster laced groundbait. Section winners were Ron Chenery and match captain Fred Fairman, Fred also won the specimen with a 1-9-0 perch which equals the largest this series caught so far by Declan Kelly. With the river matches now done for the series, we turn our attentions to the mainly commercial fisheries for the winter and spring.

1 – Simon Pavey – 19-5-0
