THE River Avon hosted the Evesham Junior and Intermediate Championship.
Winners of each category qualified for the prestigious Shakespeare Evesham Championship.
Forty-one boys and girls turned out from all over the country for the competition backed by Matrix and DHP.
The top junior was Joe Skinner, of Evesham and District Angling Association, from peg one.
Feeding hempseed and maggots on the pole at 12 metres, Skinner caught roach and hybrids to put 8lbs 15oz on the scales.
The intermediate winner was Tom Potter, of Pride Of Derby, from peg 31 with an 11lbs barbel helping him to 11-13.
