AnglingTrust The voice of Angling


Chris and Colin Crack the Avon


Avon 7th October 2018

The second match of the double header RiverFest weekend made its way once more to the River Avon, this time at Warwick. The cold snap continued and left a frost on the ground and the fish a little slow to start feeding.

In an unlikely tie, it was both Colin Beech and Chris Harrison who weighed in a very respectable 15lb 6oz and qualified from their respective zones. However, both anglers went about their weights very differently.

Colin took most of his fish on the float and maggot, with roach, dace and a couple of bonus chub bolstering his weight. Meanwhile, Chris set his stool out on the feeder and made the majority of his weight with Skimmers.

The final qualifier Terry Trueman took a very respectable 9lb 11oz to and the final golden ticket. This was a cracking mixed bag of roach, dace and Chub.

Thanks to Tony Butler for hosting this round. This weekend’s qualifiers move to the River Trent at Burton on Saturday 13th and the River Wye at Hereford on Sunday the 14th.
