Female angler dominates Passies Pond match

Match angling may be dominated by men but Samantha Sim proved the ladies have also got the skills to fish against the best by winning the latest round of the Passies Ponds silverfish league with 52lb 8oz.

The Preston Innovations Delcac rod used the pole at various lengths at the West Sussex complex with maggot and pellet to tempt plenty of bream to 4lb along with a brace of bonus perch.

Second place was taken by her team mate Jamie Grainger who used a similar attack for a 46lb 6oz haul.
