River fishing legend Wayne Swinscoe has announced a new pairs league on the prolific Lincolnshire fens. The new series is born out of frustration by the ex Essex County Skipper, who explained: “For the first time in a number of years, me and a few of my friends have really been struggling to find good sized matches. It seems that there are plenty of small commercial events taking place, but not a lot of any size for people like me, who prefer to fish matches on natural venues.
I have always been a believer in the saying ‘action speaks louder than words’ and so have decided to run something myself! The River Welland and River Glen have been fishing brilliantly this year, with loads of good nets of roach falling to all kinds of tactics. For this reason, I wanted to run something that would take in both venues, as they are only a couple of miles apart. I suggested the series to my sponsors, Maver and Bait Tech, who were only too keen to support it.”
The series will follow a format which will see anglers able to nominate which of the two rivers that they want to fish each round, and with pools money being paid out seperately on each venue, it won't really matter which of the two fishes the best. Entry is just £20 per pair, with a daily pool of £20 each per match.
The overall league will be decided on accumulative weight- leaving it wide open to surprises when and if the bigger fish decide to feed. With a practice match on the 27th December, the first round of the league proper is 30th December.
