Summer League R10

Summer League Round 10,  Reg Howard Trophy, Sunday 19th September:

With three sections in play it was anyones guess where the bags were going to come from.  It turned out to be a Bird Hide v Lower Basin contest with the Bird Hide coming out on top.  Steve Maynard got the long pole working on peg 46 and consistently gathered the silvers for a winning bag of 8lbs 10ozs.  Simon Allen on 18 had a few skimmers on the tip in the closing stages from the Lower Basin to get him over the line in second, but not enough quality fish to catch Steve, ending with 8lb 3ozs.  Simon did however wrap up the Summer League Title winning it with 135 points.

Tony Hillas was hampered when he managed to stand on his glasses and break them, but he still managed to find enough silvers from Bird Hide peg 44 to finish 2ozs ahead of Paul Braund for Third place.  Paul had stuck to the inside line off peg 16 all match and was rewarded with a decent skimmer on the whistle to take that section at the death with 6lbs 14ozs.  Dave Allen netted 3lbs 5ozs of bits to win the tough Second Basin section (its due to fish a cracker at this time of year so don’t despair if drawing green) and Len rounded off the Bird Hide with a 3lbs and the section win.

Summer League R9

Summer League Round 9,  Phyllis Turner Trophy (Roach n Rudd), Sunday 12th September:

The big silver bars were nowhere to be seen and so it was a day of  slow bag accummlation as everyone chased the smaller redfins.  Adrian Hill used the long pole to piece together over 4lbs of redfins to win the match.  Brother Kevin Hill chose to use the waggler   to conmcentrate on the bits and ended up 10ozs off the pace in second.  Simon Allen stuck to his trusty pole and finished 5 ozs behind Kevin in third for an unexpected Second Basin shut out.

Brian Powel won the Lower Basin Section with just over 3lbs on the short pole, 1oz ahead of Dick Turner who won the Second Basin Section with 3lbs.

Pairs League R7

Pairs League – Round 7 – Sunday 6th September

With double figure bags of quality silvers coming from the Middle Pound in recent days there was disapointment on match day as the bites proved hard to come by.  Steve Whitehouse made the most of an end pag and banked over 5lbs of silvers to easily win the Pound section.  Partner Jack Crystal was also smashing his section on the Lake and a 22lb winning bag saw the Lynstone lads take maximum points and a clear victory.

Me and My Boy consolidated thier lead in the league with Simon Allen finishing 2nd and Dave Allen 3rd respectively.  The Team now have an almost unassailable 2.5 point lead over the Brendon All Stars who crashed out with Matt Sampson taking last place on the lake and unable to support parther Tony Hillas who finished runner up in the Pound.

Summer League R8

Summer League Round 8,  BR Autospares Trophy, Sunday 22nd August:

A bumper turnout for the annual ‘wag n mag’ contest saw the inclusion of Bird Hide section after a long absence.  The match itself saw the Lower Basin dominate as expected with the top five weights (four doubles figure bags of silvers) coming from this section.

It was unfortunate for the Tiscott Boys this was not a pairs match as Paul Braund and Tony Johns finished 1st and 2nd respectively.  Tony was denied a £100 silver peg bonus off end peg 13 by just three ounces as Paul bagged a few late skimmers on the 8m whip from peg 16 to nudge ahead.  Dick Turner was on adjacent peg 17 and finished third with a 12lb bag of silvers using the traditional waggler method.

Rob Fuller took the homours in the Second Basin with an 8lb net of silvers for the section win and Steve Whitehouse won the Bird Hide section with just short of 8lbs.  Simon Allen beat Dave Allen by an ounce in the Lower Basin to win that section (every fish counts!).

Pairs Leaguer R6 Stu Bell Trophy

Pairs League – Round 6  Stu Bell Trophy

Dick Turner pole fished his way to a near 14lb bag of silvers to win the Lower Basin section but partner Brian Powel could only manage 5th  in the upper Basin, resulting in Team Faint Heart having to share the Stu Bell Trophy.  With Matt Sampson on Tamar Lake duty stand in Ryan Willshire bagged 4lbs of bits for a credtable Upper Basin  3rd which when combined with Tony Hillas’s 12lbs and second in the Lower Basin section was enough for the Brendon All Stars  to share the win.  Me and my Boy saw thier league lead cut to just 0.5 of a point but did finish third with Simon Allen winning the Upper Basin Section.
