Summer League R3

Summer League Round 3, Sunday 10th June:

With the skimmers active in the shallower water it as no surprise that Nick ‘Super Emmett’ West cruised to victory with a 16lbs net of our slimy friends from the hotly fancied peg 34.  Nick had the added bonus of £100 added to the payout as peg 34 was selected as the ‘golden peg’ for the match.

Ian Gray enhanced his lead in the Summer League, netting a bonus 9lb carp from the Bird Hide section to add to his silvers for a 13lbs second place haul.  Steve Whitehouse found a couple of slabs amongst the skimmers to get his weight above 10lbs for third place.

It was slower going in the Lower Basin where Dave Allen won the section with 7lbs of silvers, Nathan Underwood won the Second Basin with a 9lbs skimmer haul and the bird hide section was taken by Dean Ferris with a 7lb bag of Silvers thanks to Ian Gray finishing on the podium.  Jack Crystal again saw off a number of Seniors (including me!) to win the junior section from a tough draw in the Lower Basin.

Pairs League R3

Pairs League Round 2

Tuesday 5th June

It was a perfect score for Cosmic Angling with Ian ‘Cosmic’ Croxton and Pete Horton winning their respective sections.  Both anglers banked bonus carp to boost their silver catch.  Kevin Hill was only an ounce behind Pete Horton netting a carp and a slab but partner Ady Larkins struggled in the Second Basin and they had to settle for third.  However,the Halwill Hustlers were not competing last night so they did have the consolation of going top of the League.

The Tiscott Boys put in another strong performance with Tony Johns and Paul Braund finishing third and second respectively in their sections to finish second overall, and move into second spot in the league.

Summer League R1

Summer League Round 1,  Monica Jones Cup, Sunday 20th May:

Just to set the record straight, 24 anglers fished the corresponding competition last year and banked 58lbs 4ozs of fish, two less fished this year and banked 84lbs 8ozs, so in my books that is an improvement.

In last years competition Ian Gray came stone last with 4ozs.  This year he turned the table on its head and won with over 7lbs of silvers, a 5lb carp and a 1lb bonus Perch, taken on long and short pole from peg 32.  Nathan Underwood was the only angler to consistently find the silvers from the Lower Basin, bagging 8lbs for 2nd.  Matt Sampson, who had been in competition at Larford the previous day,  bumped a number of quality fish and ended with 7lbs, including one slab, to round off the podium.  Fourth place went to Paul Braund who picked off the pits using the 8 meter whip for 6lbs.

Jack Crystal made his junior debut and smashed it with 2lbs 10ozs for the Junior win and 14th overall, beating 8 seniors from peg 19.

There were section wins for Kevin Hill (5lbs 11oz Lower Basin), helped by a 3lb monster eel, and Ian ‘Cosmic’ Croxton (5lbs 5oz Second Basin).  Runner up sections went to Jean Bowden and Simon Allen.
