Makins Classic

A brand new competition for 2023, the Makins Classic will see commercial experts battle it out on the newly revamped Makins Fishery.

We’ve worked closely with the new fishery owner Andy Pell to put together a great series across the summer that’s sure to see plenty of bites from Makins hungry carp!

The payout:

  • Over £5000 with £2500 going to the winner (*subject to entries)
