Townsend top rod on the Beastie with a huge weight

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

If ever a re­sult shows why I con­tinue to harp on about giv­ing an­glers plenty of room when at all pos­si­ble on com­mer­cial lakes to en­sure a good day’ s sport then take a good look at the Sun­day De­coy Open match on the Beastie Pool.

With few an­glers on the lake, Ben Townsend put a mas­sive 287lb 8oz to the scales from peg four.

Don’t get me wrong Town send is a top-class-an­gler, but that sort of weight is usu­ally only achieved when an­glers have lots of spare pegs around them as he did on the day.

Kevin Wadge came sec­ond with 173lb 13oz fol­lowed by Si­mon God­frey with 138lb 12oz.


Horse­shoe Lake at De­coy rose to the oc­ca­sion for some of the JVAC field on Sun­day.

Lead­ing the way with 170 lb 10 oz was Chris Saun­ders. He rarely strayed from a short pole line with meat to romp home from peg 13.

Dan Ab­bott on peg three took the run­ner-up spot with 106lb 12oz taken from the mar­gin sand then came G us Ga us den in third place on peg five with an­other weight taken close in for 93lb.
