Hat-trick man Kyle Wood set a new club record for James Maude AC after the match was switched from the islands to the canal in midweek.

One of the best Maude matches for some time, saw all anglers catching good weights. But Miracle Baits man Kyle is in top form and used his paste tactics to the maximum to take a new club record of 185lb 2oz from peg 24 and complete a hat-trick.

Second place on the same stretch was Andy Topham a very commendable 133lb 1oz from peg 27.
