Smith wins for second consecutive week
This week’s Holbeach and District Angling club match was held at Sharpe’s Bridge, South Holland Drain.
Just like last week, it was Roger Smith who took the win and continued his very impressive form.
As the fish began to become more present in the waters, it is becoming much more enjoyable for the anglers as shown by the weights.
Smith took 19lb 12oz from peg 17 and he took two bonus bream as well to take top spot in the match.
In peg 16, Chris Newton was second as he took a couple of nice roach, rudd and skimmers, all on the pole line to take 11lb 2oz to the weights.
Finally, in third was Jason Thrower who managed to take 10lb 7½oz to the weights from peg 13.
As the winter sets in, the river is seeming to be in brilliant form, which means the local anglers can still expect to take some greatweights in the upcoming matches.
