Pondwood (snake)

2nd February 2020

The snake at Pondwood was in terrific form for round fifteen of the championship series and round one of the knockout competition. The management at the venue had recently completed an extensive re-stocking programme of the snake and it appears to have paid off handsomely, as despite the difficult windy conditions, there were some excellent weights, with over 40lbs needed to take tenth place! Glen Briggs took the honours with 82-4-0 of small carp caught on the pole on maggot over micro’s and a little groundbait. Second spot went to Doug Read who was just 2lbs behind with a level 80lbs and third was Jon Colman with an excellent 77lbs. Section winners were Perry Fairclough and Declan Kelly and winner of the specimen on the day was Martin Smith with a 6-9-0 carp which he had to play carefully on light tackle. This was undoubtedly match of the series so far, with the previous current series heaviest match weight being beaten three times and most of the field having plenty of bites.

1 – Glen Briggs – 82-4-0
2 – Doug Read – 80-0-0
3 – Jon Colman – 77-4-0

Martin Smith – Carp – 6-9-0
