Townsend top with over 218lb

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

There hasn’t been as many an­glers on the week­end De­coy Lakes opens of late, but those not at­tend­ing are miss­ing out on some fan­tas­tic sport.

In the Sun­day match on t he Elm Pool, Ben Townsend took the hon­ours putting a mas­sive 218lb 7oz to the scales.

Not far be­hind in sec­ond­place was Andy Leathers with 200lb 1oz, then came Shaun Coa­ton on 192lb 8oz.


JVAC fished the Wil­lows on the De­coy com­plex and Mick King topped a very strong field with 146lb 3oz.

He drew peg one and caught for most of the day on a short pole line with worm and paste.

Se­cond with 135lb 1oz was Ian Carter on peg 25.

He drew one of the best feeder pegs at De­coy but to his hor­ror pulled his £200 plus feeder rod out of his holdall only to find it in sev­eral bits so had to fish the match with a tiny light­weight feeder rod. Arm-aching stuff!

Third place went to Lee Ken­dall who caught shal­low on pel­let for 119lb 3oz.
