When you consider that weights in excess of 100lb are caught all year round, it is not hard to see why many class Avon as one of the most consistent match and pleasure waters around.

Targeting the far and nearside margins works incredibly well all year round, with carp to 15lb making up the majority of bags.

Most anglers opt for a pole approach due to the canalised layout of this lake, with corn, pellet and maggot the top baits. Feeder and waggler tactics will also score well for those preferring to use a rod and line approach.

Matches are usually held on Sundays, although as with every lake here at Makins, it is available to pleasure anglers when events are not taking place.
