Bream and tench throw up a surprise win as anglers take some good weights. The first week in October saw 36 Anglers compete in Ripon Piscatorial Associations Inaugural River Ure Festival Trophy. The sections used ran from above the city’s North Bridge down to Hewick Bridge near the racecourse, with the pegs cherry picked from the clubs available 65 in the stream sections which ensured a fair festival was in prospect. A busy year of planning which involved the river being totally re-pegged and lots of tree clearance, pegs were made more accessible so the sections to be used were suitable for such an event.

A tight finish to the midweek open match at Makins. WEDNESDAY ‘KOBRA’ OPENLAKE TWO DYNAMITE MAKINSOctober 12 2011 Number of pegs: 20Once again fish were spread all round Lake Two (Dynamite Makins) for the Wednesday KOBRA Open, with all of the top eight in with a chance of ‘framing’ right up to the final whistle. Clear winner was Phil Jarram (Dynamite Baits) who drew peg B17 (yet again) and fishing pellet on straight bomb over light feed he caught carp throughout the last 2 hours to total 92-00. Second placed Fred Coxon (Kobra Feeders) on peg A15 was catching carp at a steady rate on pole and pellet before breaking his pole which curtailed his activity, but his 77-04 was still enough to put him well clear of third placed Andrew Blackwell (Buckingham) whose 55-04 of carp were taken in the final hour on sweet corn fished in the margins.

Hard going on Avon as winning weight doubles that of second place. THURSDAY ‘KOBRA’ OPENDYNAMITE MAKINSOctober 13 2010Number of pegs: 25In spite of pleasant weather Avon Lake (Dynamite Makins) generally fished hard and although every competitor caught carp about a third did not bother to weigh in. Venue expert Charlie Shaw (Fishermanea Derby) on peg 3 caught carp from his margins early and on long pole late on, and kept the fish interested by alternating meat and corn to total 68-08 for a clear win. Runner up John Adamson (Kobra Feeders) on peg 9 landed just 6 carp on pole and pellet for 31-04, edging out ‘Mr consistent’ Dave Hicken (Disco) who landed 29-08 from peg 1 fishing corn in the margins.

Poor weights blamed on bad river conditions, but results were still close. A worrying red tinge has returned to haunt the Severn once again which was thought to be part of the blame for the poor results last year and once again the weights were low. Top spot on the day went to Shrewsbury rod Guy Jones, drawn on county ground peg 25 he adopted a stickfloat approach two rods out, feeding and fishing bronze maggot on the hook he had two large perch and some bits for a 6-9-0 winning weight. Five pegs above the winner on spinny peg 20 was Total Angling’s Rob Brennan who decided on a groundbait and pole to hand attack which resulted in one good chub and some small dace to put 6-3-0 on the scales for second overall.
