Thankfully the 60 mph gales experienced on the previous day had subsided in time for this latest Angling Trust & Canal & River Canal Pairs qualifier held on Sunday 21st August 2016. The only “threat” to catches were low water levels which had been a problem since earlier in the week.

32 pairs were booked in to fish. In the event 31 actually fished. ‘A’ Section was on the Long Eaton Victoria (Tamworth Road) section and ‘B’ Section on Long Eaton Federation’s Dockholme length.

Individually the top weight was recorded by Wolverhampton angler Neil Turner at peg 108 in B Section. He put 8 lbs 9 ozs, comprising skimmers and roach, on the scales. Derby angler, Ben Sharratt, secured second spot with 7 lbs 14 ½ ozs again in B Section at peg 83. Third was James South with 7 lbs 8 ½ ozs from peg 48 in A Section just edging Ian Sharratt, who had 7 lbs 4 ozs, in to fourth place.

The Pairs result was pretty tight with only 7 points separating the top 6 pairs. Winning pair, with 56 points, were James South (31) and Darren Massey (25) both from Tamworth. West Midlands pair Steve Dudley (24) and Simon Nickless (27) took second with 51 points. Two pairs tied for third with 50 points – Jason Cunningham / Ben Sharratt and Philip Cross / Richard Griffith. However, Jason and Ben have already qualified. The two further pairs going forward are Peter Scott and Jason Scrivener and Simon Preece and Simon Mottram. Both pairs recorded 49 points although Peter and Jason just edged it on weight for the pools pay out by 2 ozs !
