Pairs League R4 2013

Stu Bell Trophy

The Pairs League reached the half way stage on a day you could fry an egg on the towpath and so unsurprisingly the fishing was not as fast and furious as in recent contests.  With two hours to go Paul Braund's carp swim on peg 35 came to life and four carp and a bream later he had added 20lbs to his net for top weight on the day.  Partner Tony Johns struggled from peg 20 but did enough to see the Tiscott Boys finish third and hold second place in the championship.  It was a good day for the Allens with Dave and Si taking second best bags respectively in thier sections and winning the coverted Stu Bell trophy whilst retaining the championship lead for Me and My Boy.  The Bude Bay Pirates finally got thier game together and a best bottom basin weight from Tacker Giles was backed up by a solid net of silvers from partner Adrian Hill to see them home in second spot.  A quick mention in dispatches for the Old Boys Derek Foster and Guy Pessell who took creditable 5lb + bags of silvers from two unfancied pegs for equal fourth.
