We have had some good turnouts for the last few weeks and The Pairs match at Walberton proved to be the same. The only problem was that we ended up with an odd number (not much good if you are looking for pairs) therefore I dropped out to fish the next peg that would have been put on Cart.
Good nets of quality roach filled the first couple of places on Stemps with not many carp showing.
First from peg 13 was Mark (canal) Pantling. Fishing with his trusty whip Mark had an excellent net of roach weighing in at 13 – 4 – 0.
John Sheppard drew peg 7 one of his favourites and concentrated on the roach and was rewarded with 9 – 11 – 0 of really good quality fish to secure second place.
Denis Hurley managed a couple of carp and some bits from peg 15 and his 6 – 12 – 0 was enough for third place.
This of course was a pairs match and taking their partner into account first were John Sheppard and Mick Greenway on 14 points and second were Mark Pantling and Ron Short.
