An early-morning snow shower missed Summer Hayes completely and Mardon AC's weekend match was fished on what turned out to be a warm and bright sunny day.
Long Ponds was in good form for the occasion and the man to beat quickly became Len Hutton, who poled pellet and red maggot at 14 metres off peg 12 for a winning 35-12-0 mixed catch of silvers and carp.
Well beaten into second place was Ian Jones, who put corn and pellet to work at peg nine for a 26-10-0 of mostly carp.
Meanwhile, third-placed Mark Woods fished the same tactics as the winner off neighbouring peg 13 and weighed in a similar 17-8-0.
Result: 1, Len Hutton 35-12-0, peg 12; 2, Ian Jones 26-10-0, peg 9; 3, Mark Woods 17-8-0, peg 13; 4, Simon Roberts 14-1-0, peg 38; 5, Mike Honey 13-10-0, peg 29; 6, Mike Ball 9-8-0, peg 31.
Weights dropped along with water temperatures in the Avon Angling Midweek Open, fished at Landsend Fisheries, near Wedmore.
Top of the scoresheet was match organiser Tony Rixon, who knocked up his second successive victory and was the only competitor to hit the 100lb-mark.
He fished an 8mm punched, luncheon meat hookbait and took most of his 24 all-carp catch, totalling 144-14-0, from his four or seven-metre pole line.
Aaron Britnell fished similarly on the opposite bank and included the heaviest silverfish catch of 24-8-0 in his 46-14-0 catch, which gave him fifth place.
Overall: 1, Tony Rixon (Avon Angling Mosella) 144-14-0, Match 19; 2, Adrian Jefferey (Avon Angling) 69-6-0, Match 22; 3, Ziggy Slowinski (Garbolino) 52-10-0, Match 15; 4, Phil "Fabio" Harding 51-11-0, Match 13; 5, Aaron Britnell (Stouts Hill AC) 46-14-0, Match 3; 6, Adam Caswell (Bristol PSV) 46-5-0, Match 11.
Local expert Dave Wride poled a 6mm soft pellet hookbait close to the island off peg 14, and the resulting 121-1-0 of quality carp gave him his second consecutive win in the Acorn Carp Fishery's 'Tuesday Tenner' series of matches being fished at Kingston Seymour.
The top silverfish catch was taken by Drennan Team England's Des Shipp, who used a maggot hookbait to wheedle 11-4-0 of skimmers from peg 24.
Overall: 1, Dave Wride (Sensas Thyers) 121-1-0, peg 14; 2, A Baker 74-2-0, peg 6; 3, Dave Blakemore 71-1-0, peg 5; 4, M Graham (Junior) 63-8-0, peg 34; 5, Simon Belcham (Bristol PSV) 63-6-0, peg 10; 6, Mike Wilson (Bristol PSV) 62-14-0, peg 37.
