Summer League R6

Summer League Round 6,  Sunday 18th July:

Phew what a scorcher!  With temperatures touching 30c, a very light breeze and bright blue skies it was always going to be a tough day.

Seasoned angler Brian Powell showed the field the way home and banked 7lb 10ozs of silvers from the Lower Basin using the short pole to win the competition (no waggler Brian?  What has the modern world come to?).  Andy Southy bagged a few early skimmers on the tip and built on that with silvers to place second with 7lbs.  Adrian ‘Sailor’ Hill could not repeat last weeks winning performance but still netted 6lb 10ozs of bits for third place.

Kevin Hill took the section win in the Second Basin, finding the better skimmers in the last hour for 6lbs 5ozs and only 3ozs behind with 6lbs 2ozs was John Townsend who won the Lower Basin section.

Summer League R5

Summer League Round 5,  Charity Match, Sunday 11th July:

It was wet charity match as the duly forecast rain arrived on time.  Adrian ‘Sailor’ Hill bagged up on silvers from the Lower Basin to win the contest with 12lbs.  Matt Sampson was not far behind with another double figure haul of silvers for second.  Simon Allen pole fished his way to third place with 8lbs of silvers from the Second Basin.

The match raised £135 for Stratton Hospital and thanks go out to Rob and the Team at Waterfront Shooting and Fishing for some fabulous prizes and our outgoing Treasurer Derek Foster for a generous donation.

You may all be wet but don’t worry lads, the heatwave is coming!

Pairs League R5

Pairs League – Round 5

Tuesday 29 June

Was the cheering from the Brendon Arms for England as they put Germany away in the Euros, or perhaps Simon Allen as he smashed it again to win the Lower Basin by a 4lb margin?  Who knows, but with ‘Dad’ Dave banking a creditable net of silvers for third in the Second Basin they thought it was all over, and it was with a clear victory for Me and My Boy.   The Brendon All Stars could have crashed out like the Germans as Tony Hillas failed to fire from peg 15, finishing fourth.  Luckily for Tony partner Matt Sampson put in a Sterling performance to win the Second Basin with a double figure bag of skimmers.

Summer League R4

Summer League Round 4,  Martins Group Sevices Shield, Sunday 27th June:

The weather forcast proved thankfully unreliable as the expected heavey rain did not emerge and everyone remained dry.

Early pressure from Adrian ‘Sailor’ Hill picking up skimmers on the tip from peg 19 was not enough to prevent Simon Allen on peg 17 bagging 14lbs of silvers (many late on) to win the Martin Group Services Shield.  Adrian did manage a double figure bag of skimmers to finish second, 12ozs ahead of Dick Turner on peg 35 who finished third with a bag of skimmers taken on the long pole.

There were section wins for Dave Allen and Matt Sampson with nets of silvers for over 7lbs and 8lbs respectively.

Simon Allen also netted the season best roach to date with a 1lb specimen, he also had another at 12ozs.
