Power Does It Again

The Unstoppable Power!

Preston ace Andy Power has won more in the past two months than most anglers win in a lifetime. The South West rod has hit an unbelievable run of form lately.

Qualifying for the Fishomania last month at Woodlands View Fishery was a great way to kick off his 2016 campaign. Well, he's only gone and qualified for the Match This Final, at Lindholme Lakes last week.

It turned out the fishery did fish hard due to the unseasonably cold weather, I weighed 128lb which was enough to win, ahead of Steve who weighed 88lb. After lots of travelling I am over the moon that it is all paying off!

The wind soon made things difficult and made it really hard work to fish long properly. Those with the wind off their backs could present and feed properly and really started to pull away.

Three hours into the match I honestly thought I was last in the section with only half a dozen fish, I knew that my margins were my only hope of gaining back decent points. I started potting in corn quite heavily, regularly, and I chose to fish the margins for the remainder of the match. To my amazement I started to catch big fish from 8 to ten pounds, much bigger than anything I had seen get caught. My margin rig again featured a Dura Plus 6 4x12 float, with 13 Hollo, 0.19mm Reflo mainline to a 0.13mm Power hooklength and a size 16 PR456.
