Ide bags dominate at Highfield Fisheries

Silverfish have been key to victory in the latest round of open events at Lancashire’s Highfield Fisheries with a duo of top anglers sharing over 190lb of ide over the last two matches.

Oldham’s Keith Hyde was the first to prove you don’t always need carp to win when he used red maggot up in the water from peg 13 on Oak Lake to take victory with 81lb.

Just days later Ted Carter Preston rod Graham Carter went one better and broke the triple figure barrier to win with 103lb 4oz from peg 33 on the same water.
