Curtis cruises to victory on Warwickshire Avon


RiverFest 23- Warwickshire Avon Qualifier 2

The Warwickshire Avon's second RiverFest qualifier saw the river in similar conditions to the first, low and clear which had it's toll on overall weights for the day. However with a full field of 60 of the nations finest running water anglers, competition was fierce on the last weekend of qualifiers.

First on the day was Gordon League Angler John Curtis. Having drawn peg 36 on the Myton Fields section, John went on to fish a very tidy feeder match catching twenty skimmers for 15lb 14oz.

Second on the day was the ever consistent Andy Power, who can seemingly turn his hand to any style of angling! Andy switched between the pole and waggler for 11lb 4oz of mainly roach.

Rounding out the top three was Mark Brush who drew next to Andy on Myton fields peg 26. Mark caught a bonus chub and roach for his 9lb 10oz.

In terms of qualification it was two household names who made the frame. Simon Fry won Zone B with a 9lb 8oz mixed bag on the Waggler and the returning Matt Derry took Zone C with an impressive 9lb 0oz 8drm of pole caught small roach.
