Stan Howard sets new record at The Warren
ANGING: STAN Howard set a new match lake record at Stanford’s Warren lake when he won the first of the 2012 pegged club matches at the fishery.
Howard fished pole at around 12m from peg 19 to land a record of 112lb 8oz.
The haul was all bream with the exception of a 2lb eel. The matchman started catching early in the competition and caught steadily throughout.
Kevin Nash took second place with a bag of tench weighing 41lb 2oz from peg one. He lost several big tench.
Mark Henry used the pole up to 13 metres from peg six to claim third place with a mixed bag of quality roach and skimmer bream.
Henry had a tough time keeping the pole steady in the gusting side wind. Only nine anglers turned out for the match but despite the recent cold rain entering the water and a strong wind, all the competitors caught fish.
