Charity Match: 9 Nov
Some of you throughout the match industry may know a Robert Woodward. For those of you that do not know Rob, He is a great man who spends a lot of his time near Christmas dressed as Santa, visiting children at local hospitals delivering presents, this year to help fund Rob and his truly heartwarming ambition to give children of whom are spending their Time in hospitals something to smile about, we will be holding a charity fishing match. The match will be £20 to enter, £10 for the peg which we will be donating and £10 will go into the prize pot for sections and winners on the day. The match will be held on the snake water here at Pondwood on Saturday the 9th of November, sections used will be dependent on turnout, we would also like to run a raffle around the same time for the same cause. This will be depending on if we are able to get our hands on some prizes, I will approach some local shops etc to sponsor the raffle or if anybody on Facebook or anybody you may know want to sponsor such thing please have them contact us.
The history surrounding Pondwood fishery dates back to 1660. Lake 1 was historically a duck flight pond where the farmer at that time would poke his gun outside the door and bag a duck or goose for dinner. These flight ponds were a part of life for farmers and farm workers as the market was often a long walk or cart ride away and the livestock of chickens etc. for dinner could become a bit mundane.
Over the coming Winter we will be continuing with the revamp of Lake 2. Also we will be revamping the Woodland lake, filling in the channel that always created an imbalance and making new swims. This will then be stocked with multi species as with the Snake and used for additional match angling.
Winter 2017 - Spring 2018
A huge amount of work was undertaken last winter and spring on a complete drain down and restock of the Snake Water. Thankfully it is now back to all its former beauty and is hosting some great fishing matches.
Our Facebook page Pondwoodfisheriesofficial is probably the most direct way of getting up to date information as postings are almost immediate. Posts are made by those fishing and participating as well as by Pondwood Fisheries management. The latest match announcements are also displayed here.
We have a new Instagram page where we will post more images and videos of our beautiful setting.
