Findlay smashes 2011 best at Packington Somers

Commercial master Andy Findlay proved why he is considered to be one of the best anglers on the open match scene when he banked the biggest weight of the year at Warwickshire’s Packington Somers.

The Preston Innovations ace set about emptying Gearys Lake with simple Method feeder tactics after he picked peg 11 from the draw bag and managed to tempt carp to 12lb to take his meat hookbait and eventually placed 149lb 14oz on to the scales.

His weight was almost three times that of runner up Phil Canning who bagged 56lb 10oz.
