Pairs League R8 2021

Pairs League - Round 8 - Sunday 3rd October

After the dissapointment of Middle Pound it was decided to experiment by fishing the narrows section from Rodds Bridge towards Whoopers Bend.

A win on the Lake by Simon Allen with 28lbs was needed to secure the league victory for Me and My Boy by 1 point as partner Dave  Allen struggled in the narrows.  It was unfortunate that Tony Hillas lost a carp early doors that would have easiy won that section for the Brendon All Stars but they had to settle for second place with Mat and Tony finishing third in thier respective sections (and losing all chance of challenging for the League).

A 6lb bag of silvers taken on the punch won the narrows section for Mark Gratton off end peg 7, and with partner Adrian Hill sneaking into fourth at the lake, it was enough to take the victory for the Bude Bay Piratres on the day.
