The weather just hasn’t been kind to this league as this week the wind blew cold and the rain just wouldn’t give in but that didn’t stop 36 anglers fishing round three of the Bag’em Matchbaits Silver League for Pairs at Dog Lane Fishery .

The winning pair this week were Dave Armstrong peg2 with 3lb 4¼oz & Bob Taylor peg30 with 5lb 8¼oz. Their combination 11 points and weight of 8lb 12½oz put them ahead of second placed pairs Rich Wills peg17 3lb 8¼oz and Simon Potter peg33 4lb 9¼oz who also managed a combined 11points but only had 8lb 1½oz .

The pair that took third place was Roger Atkins peg6 4lb 7oz and Clive Griffin peg31 1lb 11½oz and a combined 13 points.

The best single weight of the day was Martin Paynter (Daventry AC) peg 14 with 15lb 4oz of big orfe caught on worm and maggot. Unfortunately his pairs partner could not make the grade and he only picked up a section payout.

The Best Perch prize went to Dave ‘no mates’ West who’s pairs partner failed to show up, but luckily for him a nice Billie Perch of 2lb 11oz did and he went home £102 better off.
