The Shiplate Farm Summer Series started in sunshine.

SHIPLATE Farm Summer Series started in glorious weather and plenty of sun tan lotion was needed to stop the anglers from getting sunburn.

Bright sun made the conditions harder and a lot of the fish were caught in the last hour of the match on the Hawthorns and Westpool Lakes, when the sun started to lose its heat.

Dominic Sullivan bagged up using pellet on the pole to win the match.

Results: Dom Sullivan (peg 6 H), 110lb 14oz; Rich Hawkins (peg 13 H), 87lb 8oz; Steve Howell (peg 15 W), 57lb 1oz.
