It rained continuously throughout the Thursday KOBRA Open held on Thames and Avon at Dynamite Makins, with the bad weather also putting a dampener on the sport, especially Avon which only produced one of the top six weights.
DYNAMITE MAKINS THURSDAY ‘KOBRA’ OPEN | 18 August | Number of pegs 23
Continuing his form at the venue, Derby Fishermania-backed Charlie Shaw fished Thames 12, targeting his right margin with corn for a carp catch of 62-08 giving him a clear win.
Dave Hicken (Disco) followed up on last week’s win with second place from Thames 2 with 37-04, all taken on meat and pellet fished to his right margin.
In complete contrast, Phil Hull (Lanes Bait and Tackle) fished Thames 5, catching a 31-08 bag of small carp, skimmers, chub, tench, roach and perch, from ‘down the track’ on double caster.
