The Johnson & Smith Saturday Open League Match 1 - Saturday 4th January, was was fished on the West Common stretch of the Fossdyke Canal.
On the day the canal looked perfect but that was not the case, with most of the 16 anglers struggling for bites.
Steve Wilford (Linc's Match Squad) took the honours off peg 1, mainly a Roach net of 4lb 2oz to bread punch at 8 metres. John Barningham off peg 2 claimed second place with 2lb 5oz, again mainly Roach to bread punch and Alan Houlton (Linc's Match Squad) in third place with 1lb 13oz off peg 16.
