Pairs League Final Round (6)

This had to be the closest to fishing in a hurricane as you can get.  The gale force winds saw Duncan Edwards start on the tip and the method paid dividends with two carp (best 13lbs) and some skimmer bream to win the Second Basin Section with 24lbs.  Meanwhile Dick Turner was involved in a closer contest in the Lower Basin where a combination of tip and very short pole saw DT win the section by 3 ozs with a 5lb 9oz bag of silvers and New Team Faint Heart romp to an easy victory.  The league leaders Me and My Boy finished second to win the League with good bags of silvers from Si and Dave respectively.  There was a fright for the Tiscott Boys who had not finished off the podium all season, but they nearly blew it in the last match, finishing second from last but thankfuly for them half a point ahead of the Bude Bay Pirates to finish as League Runners Up.
