Weekend double win for Speed at Lindholme Lakes

Shimano/Dynamite Baits ace Nick Speed recorded a weekend double at Lindholme Lakes, winning both Saturday and Sunday opens.

The Sheffield matchman began with a win on Willows Lake on Saturday with 66lb, where he fished pellet on a variety of lines, including the short pole, long pole and up the edge banking to beat a field of 23.

Then he moved onto Bonsai Lake for Sunday’s 52 peg Winter League match latching into an 8lb fish within seconds of the match from peg 27. In the first two hours he put 50lb in the net, fishing 14-16m of pole in the deep water and ending up with a terrific 117lb 11oz.
