PAUL SCOWEN topped a brilliant two day boat session at Cambridgeshire’s Grafham Water with a superb zander brace of 17 lb and 12 lb 7 oz.

Paul and pal Andrew Ellis had made a decision to delay the trip by a few days after Hurricane Katrina bore down on the UK and the decision paid off.

Didcot, Oxfordshire-based Paul explained: ‘On arrival it seemed that we had made a great decision as the reservoir was calm and the temperature comfortable.’
