Boatyard 11 – Pairs Trophy Sunday 16th December 2018

After a very wild, wet and windy Saturday, thankfully Sunday dawned a calm and sunny day with only a gentle breeze. 18 competitors lined up for this weeks match to decide the Pairs Trophy. Chris Tims continued his run of form in the draw bag pulling out peg 26 on the 4th jetty in the Big Basin, from which he proceeded to extract 19lb 6oz of roach and perch for a runaway 1st place. Mark Harmer was also on the Big Basin at the top end opposite the wet shed on peg 18 where he had an excellent 14lb 6oz for 2nd. Back on the 2nd jetty peg 24 was Alex Watson who had 12lb 13oz for 3rd. So it was a Big Basin 1, 2, 3 this week with one double figure weight on the gate basin.But spare a thought for the 7 anglers who found themselves on the DESERT formally known as the Crane Basin! FOUR blanks in one section and a top weight of 2lb 2oz in the other! The fish had obviously moved house this week. Let’s hope they make a return by next week for the Christmas Match. Remember to bring a prize (bottle, biscuits, chocs etc) for the table……………See you there
