Canal Pairs Qualifier - Gloucester and Sharpness Canal July 23rd 2016


Canal pairs 2016 Sharpness Canal

In this third qualifier of the CRT/ AT Canal Pairs, most anglers expected bream and skimmers to be the key species to target, especially around the noted Hempsted Bend area.

When it came to individual winners, this proved to be the case, with Daiwa Gordon League angler Dave Micklewright weighing in 14lbs 8oz of bream and skimmers from peg 62.

Scott Geens was second from Peg 49, targeting the species with similar methods for 9lbs 10oz. The straight at Hempsted fished well for competitors too where it gave up lots of small silver fish.

For the pairs, it was Garbolino Blackmore Vale angler Steve Longs decision to target the canals roach that sealed a win for him and his partner Mick Nowicki here, taking them one place higher than their finish as runner’s up in last year’s event.

For second place pair Scott Geens and Danny Ashington it was a similar story with Scott bagging bream on Hempsted bend and Danny putting together a weight of silvers on the pole at Hempsted.
