Wakelin & Shipp Sail To Victory!

Preston duo top first PF Pairs Round.
Des Shipp, and his partner Adam Wakelin have won the first round of the 2015/2016 Preston Innovations Pairs tournamnent.

The competition – which is regarded by many as being the most prestigious Winter League in the country, takes place over five rounds, at commercial fisheries up and down the country. Strict rules dictate that each round is pole only – and carp don’t count, but F1s do.

The first round was split between Barston Lakes and nearby Packington Somers Fishery. Adam won his section at Packington Somers with a fantastic 44-3-0 net of F1s caught on maggot shallow. Des went one better though – not only winning his section but also the match overall with a fantastic 79-2-0 of skimmers and F1s!

He told Pole Fishing: “I’ve had a lovely days fishing. The plan was to fish chopped worm, caster and groundbait on the long pole, and its worked a treat! I’ve caught over 100 skimmer, two proper bream and two F1s for my weight,and had a fish pretty much every put in!”

The pair, who took home over £1,000 in cash on the day, beat two other pairs who also recorded a perfect two point score on weight countback. These were Eddie Bridon and Glenn Lawrence, who finished with 74-5-0, and Cam Hughes and Sean Ashby who recorded 69-13-0.

Second place individually fell to Drennan Barnsley’s Sam Wildsmith, who recorded a massive 76-12-0 on bloodworm tactics, including an F1 which was weighed separately at 6-4-0!

Third place was Browning Quaker ace, Josh Newton with 70-12-0. Josh, who was fishing in the place of Frankie Gianoncelli for this round, was also the best weight at Packington Somers.
