Pairs League R1 2013

Wednesday, 5 June 2013

The Pairs League was turned on its head as last years champions and runners up finished last and second to last in the opening round.  The best fishing was in the second basin with plenty of rudd and perch showing.  However, you needed slabs to frame and Ady Larkins alternated maggot, sweetcorn and worm to amass over 21lbs (an excellent weight in what is a three hour match), partner Kevin Hill backed this up with the second best weight from the Lower Basin to secure victory for the Lager Louts.  The best weight in the Lower Basin came from Dick Turner who netted four slabs for 11lbs, partner Duncan Edwards weighed in with 16lbs but stand in for Me and My Boy Paul Willshire denied New Team Faint Heart victory with an 18lbs haul of skimmers.  Paul was standing in for Dave Allen and Dave will find it difficult to get his place back when he returns for round 3 on this performance.
