Pairs League R7

Pairs League Round 7

Sunday 15th September

It was Whalesborough Lake that was on form for this penultimate pairs match  with Me and My Boy effectively securing the League Title by taking maximum points.  Simon Allen more than doubled the nearest weight on the Lake with a succession of carp and silvers to bank 35lbs and Dave Allen didn’t need the the bonus 3lb mirror Carp from the Middle Pound section as he had enough slivers to have won the section in any case.

For the first hour of the Middle Pound section the signs were that the recent double figure hauls of silvers would continue but someone threw a switch and the section effectively died  with anglers struggling for the next four hours.  Peter Giles eeked out 2lbs 3ozs of redfins and this was enough with Adrian Hills 13lbs of carp to sneak the Bude Bay Pirates into second place.  Kevin Hills 15lb second place on the Lake was just enough to see the Lager louts into third, Ady Larkins finishing joint 4th in the Middle Pound with 1lb 3ozs.

It will all be about the minor places on Sunday 6th October unless we get a bumper entry of Teams!

Summer League R9

Sunday 1st September, Summer League R9  – Phyllis Turner Trophy – Roach and Rudd

The strong onshore wind made bait presentation in the Lower Basin difficult and the expected large bags of redfins did not materialize, Steve Whitehouse did fared the best and banked just short of 4lbs to finish second.  The end pegs in the Second Basin produced best with Paul Braund fishing the short whip to take 78 roach and one rudd for 5lbs and the win.  Simon Hockaday could not quite make it to second place fallining an ounce short and placing third with 3lbs 14ozs off peg 34.

There were section wins for Ady Larkins (3lbs 8, peg 28) and Simon Allen (2lbs 12ozs off the fancied pre-draw peg 14).

Jack Crystal won the Junior section with 1lbs 11ozs, Alfie came second with 14ozs.

It looks like a straight battle between Simon Allen and Adrian Hill for the Summer League title, with an outside shot for Steve Whitehouse.

Chairs Trophy – Upper Tamar

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).

Summer League R8

Sunday 11th August, Summer League R8  – BR Autospares Wag n Mag

Adrian Hill made it back to back wins as he found he skimmers in the Second Basin and bagged close to 15lbs to win the annual Wag ‘n Mag match.  With Simon Allen crashing out on peg 28 (the new peg 19) Adrian took a commanding lead in the Summer League with only two matches to go. Peg 19 is now the hot peg as Matt Sampson also gave the skimmers a pummeling to net 13lbs of silvers for second place.  Simon Hockaday bagged 8lbs of silvers off peg 32 to finish third.

There were section wins for Steve Whitehouse (Lower Basin ) and Jean Bowden (Second Basin).  Jack Crystal won the juniors with just under 3lbs of silvers, Alfie was straight off the mark in his debut competition finishing second.

Volunteers Needed

Learn to Fish Southwest – Whalesborough Lake

This coming Saturday (17th August) a team of 3 Angling Trust Coaches will be holding coaching sessions at Whalesborough Lake, they already have 30 people booked in.  The coaches are requesting volunteers from Bude Canal Angling Association members to be on hand during the sessions to help the people fish once they have had their initial coaching session.  All bait and tackle is provided by the coaches.
If you can spare some time just turn up to Whalesborough lake and make yourself known to the coaches.  The coaches will be setting up from 9am, but any help during the sessions would be appreciated, even if it is just for an hour.

If you have any questions just give me a ring.
Many thanks

Pairs League R6

Pairs League Round 6 – Stu Bell Trophy

Sunday 4th August

The legendary Stu Bell Trophy saw a close competition as the Second Basin outfished the Lower Basin.  Peter Giles found the bigger skimmers and from just 12 bites amassed an 8lbs 7oz  bag, partner Adrian Hill had a creditable 4lb 8ozs of bits from the Lower Basin, enough to take victory by a point.  Me and My Dad were the runners up with Simon Allen  winning the Lower Basin with close on 6lbs of bits and Dave Allen backing that up with a creditable 5lbs.  They can blame DT for costing them that valuable point as he bagged the best part of 7lbs of blades to finish in front of Dave and get New Team Faint Heart into third with the help of Len Hancock (well done DT).

All the other Teams could not put anything consistent together other than the Tiscott boys who were at least consistently bad, but amazingly hold on to third place in the league!
