Summer League R7

Summer League R7 – Charity Match

Matt Sampson stopped Simon Allen making it three wins on the bounce as they both tied on 12lbs 10zs for 1st place.  Both had end pegs but used very differnmt tacktics, Matt was on the tip in the Lower Basin bagging skimmers whilst Simon fished the short pole to bag up on blades.

It was certainly a day for end pegs with Mark Gratton taking third off peg 26 and Adrian Hill fourth off peg 13, both with 7lbs + bags of silvers.

Another match where the average catch rate improves dramatically (and last years weights had a 14lb carp in the mix) £111 raised on the day, well done everyone.

Summer League R6

Summer League R6 – Phyllis Turner Trophy – (Rudd and Roach only)  Trophy

The redfins were as tricky as ever to pick out from the bream and perch during the annual rudd and roach only contest.  Simon Allen kept the fish up in the water to avoid the bream and bagged a winning 7lbs 9ozs from current hot peg 15.  Mark Gratton managed a respectable 3lb 9ozs from adjacent peg 14 to finish runner up.  Dave Allen certainly had the numbers but not the quality and eventually banked 3lbs 3ozs for third place.

There were section wins for Brian Powel on peg 17 (who now moves into 2nd place in the Summer League), and Andy Southy off peg 34.

Summer Leagur R5 BR Auto Spares Trophy

Summer League R5 – BR Autospares Wag n Msg Trophy

Simon Allen took the annual Wag n Mag trophy with a 16lb bag of skimmers off peg 17.  Using a 9 meter whip Paul Braund could have done with 30 minutes extra as the skimmers came thick and fast in the last hour but he fell a couple of skimmers short and had to settle for second with 15lbs.  Matt Sampson ‘mugged’ Jack Crystal for third landing an 8lb carp bang on the whistle for 12lbs 13ozs.  Jacks 12lbs of silvers did earn him the Second Basin section win with the Lower Basin going to Brian Powel with 7lbs 5ozs.

Pairs – Stu Bell Trophy

Pairs – Stu Bell Trophy

Sunday 9th August

With the Pairs League fixtures cancelled the legendary Stu Bell Trophy was the only team event in this seasons calendar.  On one of the hottest days of the year it was always going to be tough conditions and with the carp more intersted in sunbathing than eating, so it proved.

Adrian Hill did manage to charm three lumps for a 13lb winning haul in the lake but this was the exception and with partner Len Hancock not producing in the pond the Bude Bay Pirates finished 4th.  It was a different story for the Brendon All Stars as Tony Hillas amassed a bag of crucians and roach for a near 1olb bag of bits to win the pond.  Partner Mat Samson did find one carp and some silvers for 5lb on the Lake to take third and win the Trophy overall.  Me and My dad finished runners up as Simon Allen banked 7lbs of bits for 2nd on the Lake and Dave finishing  4th in the Pond.

Summer League R4

Summer League R4 – Falcon Cup

The match weights continue to dramatically improve on last year with the average weight more than doubling, and not a carp in sight!  Kevin Hill bagged an early 2lb slab and a succession of skimmers throughout the match on the long pole from peg 17 to win the Falcon cup with 15lbs 9ozs.  Tony Hillas was blaming Preston barbless hooks for loosing a number of fish and not being able to keep pace with Kevin, eventually banking 12lbs of tip caught skimmers for second spot.  Simon Allen drew the ‘flyer’ peg 35 but it was not the outcome as anticipated, banking an 11lb net of silvers for third, but with no excuses about shoddy tackle at the presentation.

Brian Powel continued to wind back the clock as he continued his excellent comeback season with a near 8lb bag of redfins from peg 32 to win the Second Basin section on the short pole.  Andy Southey also picked up the Lower Basin section with 9lbs of early doors tip caught skimmers from peg 18, but unlike Kevin’s swim, the bites dried up on him.
