After the match, it was stated that the section the United Anglers fished which produced a large weight a fortnight ago, did not fish aswell with their best weight being only 5lb and 2nd place in there match was 2lb. I was surprised by this report and was expecting to hear of reasonable weights from the section. On a wholem most people that fished the drain was all faced with the same situation.
