Wright takes the Maver Larford Silver Fish Festival

Some super hauls of silver fish were taken during last week’s Maver Larford Lakes Silver Fish Festival as anglers targeted skimmer bream and roach, which usually get ignored in favour of the venue’s vast carp population.

The winner of the four day event was Maver-backed Sean Wright who accumulated an unbeatable seven points and a cumulative weight of over 158lb, to take home £600.

He edged a chasing pack which included runner up Grant Albutt, Brian Clarke and Jake Robinson. Some anglers struggled to get away from the carp with Maver employee Joe Lowe landing six double figure fish in the same day three match and having to put each one back!
