With a mixed bag of weather forecast, with rain cloud and wind being the order of the day, 24 anglers attended this weeks over 60’s open on Magpie lake. The previous days heavy rain was going to dictate the sport on the day, making the going hard but fair for all on the day.

Chris Saunders produced a very solid performance to comfortably win the lake from fancied peg 36, putting 77lbs 12ozs of carp on the scales. He fished maggot and 4mm expander on the hook over micro pellet to the lily pads. Second on the lake was secured with 43lbs 02ozs, taken from peg 6 by Pete Holland, who fished to the rush island at 12m with maggot and expander pellet on the hook producing the sport.
