THE river was still unfishable yesterday so Ilminster AA members headed to Dillington Pond again hoping for a few bites.

The pond was very coloured and an overnight frost was going to make it hard going.

Jamie Rich had 6lb 4oz of roach, rudd and a bonus 1lb perch to come out on top from peg 6.

Bruce Hunt was second with lots of small fish weighing 4lb 2oz from peg 17 and Justin Charles completed the frame with 3lb 9oz from peg 4.

After seven matches Rich Jamie leads with eight points followed by Robin Cox on ten and Bruce on 11.

The next match is this Sunday and the draw is at the Royal Oak from 8.30am to 9am.

Result:1 Jamie Rich (Against Men and Fish/Burt Baits) 6lb 4oz; 2 Bruce Hunt (Tiverton) 4lb 2oz; 3 Justin Charles (Ilminster) 3lb 9oz.
