Pairs League Round 4

Tuesday 20th June 2017

Phew, what a scorcher! It was the tale of two Basins as temperatures nudged the 30's with 8 of the 9 anglers struggling to find any weights in the deeper Lower Basin and weighing in with less than 2lbs apiece. Upstream in the shallower Upper Basin it was a different story with anglers averaging 7lbs apiece for the three hour match.

It was all bits in the Lower Basin with Simon Allen finding 4lbs to easily take the section.  Team partner Dave Allen banked nearly 6lbs of Silvers in the Upper Basin but it was a only to be a shared win for Me and My Boy.  The Lager Louts had two strong finishers with Ady Larkins finishing second in the Lower Basin with an ounce shy of 2lbs, and a late slab helping boost Kevin Hills bag to over 6lbs and a share of the win.  Me and My Boy did have the consolation of regaining the lead in the League.

Despite Ian Croxton winning the Upper Basin with nearly 12lbs (including a 6lb carp in the first 5 minutes), Cosmic Angling just missed out on third place due to solid performances from Dick Turner and Pete Slade to see New Team Faint Heart pinch it.
