Pairs League Final Round 2011

Sunday, 23 October 2011

Sunday 23rd October

Now is the time to bag up on 'slab' bream and they were concentrated between pegs 30 and 32 for the final pairs match of the season.  Three anglers netted 137lbs between them with two getting 50lb plus bags, all using maggot and alternating between the pole and the waggler.  Nathan Underwood took the top weight of 53lbs on the day but in pairs fishing you need your partner to back you up and with Dan netting just over 1lb the Halwill Hustlers had to settle for a three way tie for second place and runners up in the league.  The real story was that of another 'Allen' show as they were the most consistent with Dave's 33lbs and Simons's 13lbs ensuring overall victory and the Pairs League title for 2011. Paul Willshire also banked a 50lb plus bag but Sailor Hill could only muster 3lbs and so the Pirates ended up in the three way tie for second and third place in the league.

With the Pairs fishing over for another season the talk now turns to who will be fishing with who in 2011.  If you have never tried your hand at pairs fishing you should get a mate and come on down and give it a go, you can't do any worse than Tone and myself this season (or could you?).
