Pro Natural Talent

Kerry, Godfrey and Scholey top at Thorne!
The Bait Tech Pro Natural Teams Of Three got underway on the Stainforth & Keadby Canal at Thorne recently, and it was organisers Tom Scholey, Lee Kerry and Matt Godfrey who took an early lead with a combined total weight of 41-10-0. This gives them a 4-1-0 lead over the second-placed team, made up of Alastair Chisholme, Nathan Hughes and Nigel Bull.

In the individual stakes, it was Matrix Dynamite Trentmen ace, Chris Greensides who coasted to a victory, with a 16-12-0 from Peg 170. Chris caught stamp on roach bloodworm, and several better skimmers late in the day on caster. Runner-up was Pole Fishing’s own Matt Godfrey, with just one ounce less than Chris – he weighed in with 16-11-0. Matt caught quality roach and a bream on bloodworm, from the ‘Flats’ section.  Just two pegs away from Matt, his teammate Lee Kerry snatched third place, with a 15-9-0 catch made up of predominantly roach and a bonus perch.

The second round takes place next Sunday, January 11th.
