Holiday postponed for Marshland St James final




Buttonhole Lake finals qualifier Pawel Nycz has rearranged a family holiday so he can take part in the Marshland St James event.

Nycz finished second in the latest qualifier, but went through as winner John Bishop, with a haul of 98lbs 11oz from peg 23, had qualified earlier in the year.

Not expecting to qualify, Nycz had arranged a family holiday abroad – but his wife has rearranged it so he can now fish for the £5,000 payout.

• Any angler wishing to book in to a Tuesday night match can do so. They take place from 5.45pm until 9.15pm and are quite unique as the lake is floodlit.

Buttonhole Lake is one of the few places in Britain to hold floodlit matches. (40251395)

• The Tydd Gote AC Sunday match at Main Road was fished in mostly overcast conditions with a brisk upstream wind offering the chance of bream for those pegged in the higher number hot spots.

John Taylor was on peg 33 and just took the win with a bream and silvers all on the 6m line for a 9lb total that edged Colin Burton’s two bream haul for 8lb 6oz from peg 35.

Dave Simmonds, on peg 30, found a good tench with some bits for 4lb 11oz and third place.
