Pairs League Final 2015

Pairs League Round 9 (Final) Revised after Stewards Enquiry!

It was an incredibly close finish that saw the Halwill Hustlers defeat the defending champions Me and My Boy by two points even though they finished equal last.  Dave Allen won the Second Basin section winning the all important bonus point for Me and My Boy, with Nathan Underwood of the Halwill Hustlers on the adjacent peg finishing second.  In the Lower Basin, Simon Allen finished last with Ian Gray next to last giving Me and My Boy a shared victory with the Bude Bay Pirates.

For the Pirates stand in Matt Sampson bagged a couple of carp and a bream for a 30lb winning bag (and a bonus point!).  Mr Bude Bay Pirates, Adrian Hill, finished last in the Second Basin mirroring the result for Me and My Boy, so both ending on 7 points.

There was controversy with a couple of un-weighed roach caught up in the folds of Paul Braund's keep net that would have put the Tiscott Boys equal first!  However, the fish were only discovered after the weigh in (and safely returned to the water).    Catch of the day went to Dick Turner who netted a fine pair of trousers with a white blackberry phone in one of the pockets!

You could not make it up!
