Pairs League Round 8 (Final Round)

Sunday 1st October 2017

The New Halwill Hustlers ended the season as league champions with a win in the final pairs match of the season.  It was a case of good, but not section winning bags from both Nathan Underwood and Ian Gray that tipped the balance in the Hustler's favour as other teams failed to get their acts together.  Tony Johns did take a side bet of £2.47 off Nathan, winning the Whalesborough Lake section with an exhibition in waggler fishing and near 11lb bag.  Unfortunately for Tony, Braunder finished last in the Stock Pond section so the Tiscott Boys failed to podium and ended up fourth in the league.

A Carp taken on the tip with 20 minutes to go propelled Tacker Giles up the results sheet and when combined with a steady result from Adrian Hill it gave the Bude Bay Pirates second place on the day.

Steve Whitehouse won the Pond section with 12lbs of carp for the Lynstone Lads but Simon Hockaday could not find the bonus fish from the Lake so they ended joint third with the Lager Louts.  The Lager Louts were living up to their name and the celebrations of the previous evening may have played a part in preventing Ady Larkins finding the additional 5 ounces required to back up Kevin Hills second place on the Lake and take third place outright.
