MALVERN United Angling Association fished their annual match for the Derek Evans Trophy.
The contest was played in memory of the stalwart member who particularly enjoyed river fishing with float tackle.
It was held on the River Avon at Fladbury, near Evesham, and limited to float fishing only.
On a bright, breezy day, all participants managed to catch a variety of predominantly small fish.
However, new member Peter Yates surged ahead by positioning his polefished float towards the other bank to regularly snare small roach, perch and dace.
Yates then included a bonus pike of almost 3lbs to make up a total winning weight of 8lbs 12oz.
Some way behind in second was John Shaw who used a stick float in mid-stream to catch roach and perch weighing in at 3-3.
Jon Harcourt managed 2-15, Ray Bishop 2-10, Dave Wilkes 2-6, Graham Rees 2-3 and John Barr 2-0.
