2022 CSSC National Pike Angling Championship
The 2022 CSSC National Pike Angling Championship match took place on Thursday 3rd November 2022 at Pentney Lakes, near Kings Lynn, Norfolk.
On the day, 14 anglers turned up to compete in the “CSSC Individual Pike Angling Championship” and the “CSSC Pike Angling Pairs Championship”, with the match being fished from 9.30am to 4.30pm and expectations were high as the anglers arrived early at the fishery.
Unfortunately, as usual, the weather was not kind to us and it rained from first thing in the morning and continued until the afternoon.
At the draw, each of the competitors received a copy of the CSSC Code of Conduct, the rules of the competition and a catch card, before setting off to their respective swims on the various lakes around the complex to fish the match.
Unfortunately there were only 4 fish caught on the day, and two of those were caught by a guest that could not enter the competition.
The results of the 2022 CSSC Individual Pike Angling Championship were:-
1st Chris Neden 2 fish for 6lb 13oz
The results of the 2022 CSSC Pike Angling Team Pairs Championship were:-
1st Chris Neden and Dave Gardner 6lb 13oz
I would like to thank Hannah Wootten from the CSSC Event Organising Team and the CSSC Angling Council for their help and support in organising this competition and supplying the trophy’s.
I would especially like to thank Jim North for taking photographs of the trophy’s being awarded to the winning competitors and Chris Neden for his help with the pegging and checking the results.
Finally I would like to thank all of the anglers that turned up to complete and helped to make this an enjoyable days fishing, despite the horrendous weather at the beginning of the day. Hope to see you all again next year.
