Lawler Pairs Boat comp results

The Heron Angling Society are being blessed with perfect boating weather so far this year and the Lawler Pairs was no exception on Sunday 23rd April. 
Ten anglers set out in five boats and all headed to various parts of the Weir bank. The final trophy goes to the combined weight of two anglers, hence the title. 
There were decent catches of good sized thornback rays weighed in with I. Morris landing the biggest for the heavy fish pool.  His 10lbs 3.6oz fish, narrowly beating T. Morris' offering of 10lbs 3.2oz by just 0.4oz! 
Meanwhile, M. Morris bought ten rays to the scales whilst P. Gower had eight, encouragingly, all of the anglers landed at least one. 
There were also a lot of smoothhounds caught with T. Morris bagging the largest of these at around 7lbs and B. Morris with several just short of 6lbs. 
In the end M. Morris' haul of rays coupled with I. Morris' bag was good enough for top spot besting 2nd place by nearly 10lbs.
