The Thursday Kobra Affordable Open fished on Avon at Dynamite Baits Makins Fishery produced superb sport all round the lake in spite of a strong wind and heavy rain showers.

Winner Dave Kent (Long Eaton Victoria AS) on peg 11 found it impossible to fish at range in the strong wind so concentrated on the margins to land 68 lb 8 oz of big carp on meat for a clear win. (Photograph shows Dave with half his catch)

On peg 19, Phil Porter (Rugby), also fished meat in the margins for his second placed 55 lb 8 oz of carp and barbel, whilst in third place John Adamson (Kobra Feeders) took 50 lb 4 oz on long pole and paste from peg 25, edging out Danny Ross (Wykin AC) who had 50 lb 2 oz on long pole with corn and pellet.

Graham Elliott (Shepshead) was fifth with 47 lb 14 oz (peg 21) on pellet.

Next week’s Thursday Kobra Open match (7 May) will be on Phase 2 (Snake and Reptile).
