This second and final leg match for the W Sampson Cup was once again switched from a swollen River Rother at Fittleworth.

First was Steve Jeffey drawn on peg 27, who fished 15 metres to the island and caught quality Roach, up to 6oz’s, one decent skimmer of about a pound and two small Carp, all on sweetcorn.

In second place was Vince Herringshaw, drawn on peg 16. Vince fished for the larger Carp that inhabit this area and managed to hook two but the hook pulled on both occasions. He did manage to land thirteen Carp but most of these were the very small ones of about 3oz’s.

Third was Keith Hughes who was drawn on peg 24 where he fished towards the point of the island. Keith caught some small Roach from this area before hooking a good Carp that he manged to steer away from the island, only for the hook to pull as he got it halfway back.

Steve Jeffery wins the W Sampson Cup with an unbeatable total of 20 points
