Puddledock produces tight finish in latest event

The latest event at Puddledock Farm turned out to be a close run affair with Terry Pritlove eventually coming out on top with a hard earned 133lb 14oz net.

After drawing peg 48 on the Snake Lake at the Essex complex,the Ockenden Bait and Tackle ace decided to use maggot at 5m and was able to fool 40 carp to double figures.

Runner up Richie Thomas must have thought he was home and dry after he caught consistently throughout the day but he fell agonisingly short, taking 133lb 10oz of mirrors and commons on bread and maggot at 13m.
