Waldron nets top Round Two place
GRIMSBY-based angler Les Waldron used his years of experience to good effect on the River Ancholme in Round Two of the Mouncey League.
Drawing peg 35, he managed to find bigger fish on the long pole and also closer in.
Using worm and maggot, he was able to catch perch and hybrids for a total weight of 10.13lb.
This was only just in front of next-placed angler, Barnsley Black's Dave Brooks Junior, who weighed in with 10lb 12.8oz. Lee Harrison, also of the Barnsley Blacks team, managed 10.3lb, and fourth was Steve Williamson of Hull with 10.1lb.

I understand that the venue fished a lot better and most anglers had decent amounts of fish.
Let's hope that the expected cold snap this weekend does not put the fish off on this stretch of the river – especially as that is where I will be tomorrow!
The weather cannot do anything to put the fish off at Saltfleetby Fisheries.
And I am pleased to announce that Mablethorpe angler Paul Underwood has at last broke the 100lb barrier at the venue.
Underwood is a very nice and helpful chap – and a very good angler.
He has just missed the magic 100lb mark on a couple of occasions this year, but there was no stopping him.
Fishing off one of the best pegs on the pond, number 24, he had 108.6lb.
He was closely followed by Lloyd Lakin with 102lb from peg 21, then came Underwood junior, Nathan, who managed to get an impressive 93.10lb.
Just look at those top three weights – very good for this time of year!
The Island pond seems to throw up excellent weights, week after week.
On the Thursday, Underwood was at it again with 81lb off peg 20.
He was followed by Grimsby veteran angler Bill Marsh, pictured above, who was on peg four. He had a good day and finished up with 79lb.
Next up was Trevor Fretwell who has been very consistent in getting into the top three just lately. He had 73lb from peg 24.
Do not forget to book in if you intend to fish, especially for tomorrow's matches as they are nearly full.
At Wold View, Graham Garrod continued his reign on the Gold Lake. He was well in font of the rest of the field with a fine display of angling using the bomb and also catching carp on the pole.
He weighed in 70lb off peg 31. Lee Popham was on peg 24 and caught 47lb, while the impressive Chris Mack was third with 43lb off peg 36.
On the Sunday, it was a switch of lakes on to the Silver Lake, where Carl Graham was first off peg 13 with 67lb.
Garrod had to settle for second place with 58lb off peg 37 . Karl Cropper was third with 36lb off peg 36 and fourth – and nice to see him in the placings – was Norman Hewliss who had 34lb off peg 24.
Over at Pasture House, and on the Saturday it was Glen Collins who was on the canal stretch on peg 8 and managed to find 41lb.
Dave Bijroo was second. He was fishing the neck on peg 15 and had 38lb. Third was Dave Clarkeson with 29lb off peg 7 in the main lake.
On the Sunday, Mack returned to fish Pasture House and he wasted no time in getting to work, weighing in 32lb from peg 3 on the canal.
Mick Brown was second with 27lb from the neck on peg 5, and third in was Tony Coulbeck with 26lb off peg 28 on the main lake.
THE anglers are gearing up for the Wold View Champion of Champion matches on November 4.
Around 100 of the top local anglers are expected to attend. Four of the lakes will be in use and the draw will take place on the day.
It is a thank you by the owners and the manage- ment for all the anglers' support this year.
