Chairs Trophy Match , Sunday 25th August:
For the third year running the annual Chairs Trophy Team match was held at Upper Tamar Lake between three teams of 5 anglers. Everyone was among the roach with a few finding the skimmers and perch pushing all the weights above 10lbs.
Simion Allen fished the short pole for 43lbs of redfins to take the overall win, two pegs down Nathan Underwood switched to the pole too late to catch Si and ended in second with 30lbs. Sandwiched between them was Tony Hillas who finished a creditable third (a section win on the day) in his comeback match with 26lbs of silvers. Ian Gray (24lbs) and Jean Bowden (16lbs) won the other two sections.
The Chairs Trophy went to the Chairman’s Team winning four out of the five team sections, with 13 points out of a possible 15: Paul Braund Cpt. (3), Ian Gray (1), Simon Hockaday (3), Nathan Underwood (3), Jean Bowden (3).
