Roger Warlock converted his only bite of a five-hour long match and ran in a 1-15-0 winner in the Kingswood and Hanham RBL AC match fished on a frost-bitten Bristol Avon at Keynsham.
He cast a groundbait feeder and pinkie hookbait close in at peg 16 in the lower Ashtip field and waited four-and-a-half hours for his winning skimmer to take the bait.
The runner-up was John Thompson, who trotted a 'Topper' crow quill float and a single maggot hook bait at one rod length off peg six on the cattle grid to tempt 10oz of bits.
Result. 1, Roger Warlock 1-15-0, peg 16; 2, John Thompson 10oz, peg 6; 3, Les Williams 8.5ozs, peg 9; 4, Bill Croom 5oz, peg 3.
Despite bitter cold winds and a partially frozen lake, a dozen of the South West's top match anglers turned up to fish the Avon Angling Midweek Open at Shiplate Farm, near Weston-super-Mare.
And leading the pack from his first put-in was Andy Hembrow, who hit double tops at Match 14 with the capture of four carp totalling 24-12-0 plus 15-2-0 of bream and bits.
Bristol's Tony Rixon, pictured, came second at peg one, where dead maggot and caster tempted 25-1-0 of mostly carp and chub.
Result. Overall: 1, Andy Hembrow, 39-14-0, peg 14; 2, Tony Rixon (Mosella Avon Angling) 25-1-0, peg 1; 3, Aaron Britnell (Avon Angling) 17-0-0, peg 11; 4, Alan Oram 10-4-0, peg 7; 5, Anton Page (GOT Baits) 7-12-0, peg 13. Silverfish: 1, Andy Hembrow, 15-2-0, peg 14.
