Pairs League Final 2012

Sunday, 28 October 2012

The Halwill Hustlers clinched the title in emphatic style by winning the last Pairs league match of the season.  The fishing was harder than in previous weeks which gave a much closer contest.  Nathan Underwood topped the Lower Wharf section with 8lbs of silvers boosted by a bonus 2lb carp, Daniel Underwood finished runner up in the second basin.  This was enough to see off New Team Faint Heart; Duncan Edwards won the the Upper Wharf but partner Dick Turner was 4ozs short to get the extra point they needed for victory.  Nonetheless DT will have been pleased as he was looking at ounces until the pole fished worm produced in the last 30 minutes with a bream and a carp and it was enough to see them go above Me and My Boy in the final standings. The Bude Bay Pirates finished third which also consolidated their overall third in the League.
