Second win in a row for Barnstaple team.

BARNSTAPLE Triple Hook’s A team didn’t need a placing in the final heat of the 2011/2012 North Devon sea angling league at the weekend.

The team captained by Julian Stainer had already done enough to be crowned league champions for a second year, with Combe Martin A taking second spot.

A specimen huss of 10lb 14 ounces for Derek Ferrett and another good huss of 8lb 13 ¾ gave Combe Martin first and second spots in the weekend’s April heat. Darren Short was third for Barnstaple Rod ‘n’ Reelers A with a dogfish of 2lb 9.

Darren’s doggie gave him first in the earlier Rod ‘n’ Reelers roving competition, with Julian Stainer and Tarrant Wotton second and third with dogfish of 80.8 and 69.8%.

The Champion of Champions contest for anyone who has achieved a placing during the league year will be on the weekend of May 26/27, with the 7.30pm weigh in at Bideford Angling Club followed by the AGM.
