Browning UK Sponsored team meeting and match at Coleman’s Cottage - 2011
October saw the annual Browning UK team meeting event take place at the prolific Coleman's Cottage fishery in Witham, Essex. The annual event is organised by Browning for its UK sponsored teams and individuals as a “thank you” for their support in promoting the brand. It also brings the anglers together to build the broader Browning team spirit and to discuss products. This year Browning arranged for their new Z12 Evolution pole to be on display for all to try and it’s certainly now been put on a lot of the anglers’ “Christmas list”!
More than 70 anglers attended the event and, as usual, Coleman’s Cottage didn’t disappoint. Weights were good despite the first frost of the year with 75lb needed to win a section and 100lb needed to “frame”. The match was followed by a meal and prize giving.
The match was won by local expert Pete Steward on Copse lake peg 14 with an all carp 114lb caught by fishing tight to an island with worm and maggot. Best from Wood Lake was second placed Andy Morrison with 136lb of carp and barbel from peg 12
Zebco Europe’s Marketing & Public Relations Manager, Frerk Petersen, who travelled from Germany for the meeting and to present the prizes, commented “It’s really good to see the commitment our teams give to Browning, and to see our tackle being put to the test with Coleman’s hard fighting carp. It was also pleasing to see the overwhelmingly positive response to our new Z12 Evolution pole which we are sure will be as successful as our Z9”
