DAVE Geldart topped the Sunday open on Horseshoe Lake taking the golden peg prize from peg 30 into the process.

Geldart, who is backed by Lower Wharfe Angling, made full use of the plum end peg draw to beat the sell-out field of 30.

Offering cat meat down the margins and tight across to the trees he bagged around 30 carp with a best fish of 8lb 12oz.

His winning net of 64lb 12oz was enough to see off the game challenge of Stuart Holmes (Tightlines) who netted a creditable 58lb 12oz from unfancied peg 27. He tackled the far bank at 17 metres with corn and had carp from 1 to 6lb.

Others: Dave Sherwood (Anglers Corner) 50-6-0; Oliver Hewitt (Team Gem) 38-14-0; Paul Stead (JT Rogers) 31-8-0; Norman Dixon (Anglers Corner) 28-0-0.

Organiser Mick Herrington (Oaks) scored a double whammy in Sunday's 62-entry on Maple Lake at the Oaks not only did he win the contest with a level 38lb but he also beat reigning Kamasan champion Dean Smith (MAP Elton) off the next peg.

Herrington used pole and corn at 13 metres to the island from peg 40. Cupping in small but regular helpings of pellets and corn, he netted small carp steadily throughout. Runner-up was John McGarell (MAP Elton) who used pole and pellet from peg 65 for an all carp 37lb 9oz.

Others: Gary Pawlett (Oaks) 34-6-0; Chris Hawkes (Cleveland Angling Centre) 29-5-0; Nigel Johnson (Cleveland Angling Centre) 26-10-0; John Allerton (Tri-Cast Whizzo) 26-8-0.

Tony Hewson (Armley Angling) scored an easy win in Sunday's gale-affected 35-entry at Poppleton Ponds with 41lb.

Drawn on peg 10 he fished double red maggot at nine metres and 14 metres for carp to 8lb.

Others: Martin Robson (Shimano Quaker Match Group) 24-0-0, Colin Metcalfe (Quaker Tackle) 22-1-0; Mick Webb (Armley Angling) 18-8-0; Chris Gowling (Shimano Quaker Match Group) 14-8-0; Peter Close (Shimano Quaker Match Group) 11-8-0.
