A very different day for this latest qualifier with heavy rain and much lower temperatures. Highs of around 20C and stiff breeze all day soaking the 71 strong field of anglers.

From the off, Luke attacked the edges with paste feeding pellet. Luke was quickly into carp finishing the day with a bumper bag of carp that weighed in at a massive 284-10-0.
Luke books his place in the September Grand final and a shot at the £50k purse and Golden Reel 2020 title.
Second overall was Adam Wakelin (Daiwa) from peg 65 on Lake 3.
