Raven lake hosted this week’s Over 60’s Open, with 26 anglers in attendance. With all but 3 of the pegs going into the bag, it was going to be a very close affair for all competing but the lakes resident carp & f1’s are starting to shoal up in certain areas produced fare sport for all but a few on this bitterly cold day.
Top spot on the day went to local rod Will Hadley, who fished maggot on the hook over maggot, feeding a couple of maggots every put in, to the far shelf in 3ft of water, to put 62lbs 8ozs on the scales from peg 12. Second place went to John Millard on peg 14 who fished similar tactics to Will to put a very hard earned 29lbs on the scales, with Chris Saunders on end peg 29 taking third overall with 27lbs 06ozs.
