Snowbee sponsor the Weymouth Pairs Charter Boat open, a two day fishing competition. This years event was held on the 1st and 2nd November with most of the Weymouth charter fleet participating. Anglers fish in pairs with the aim of catching the most species. Pairs are only allowed to catch two of each species, 1 point for the first and 2 points for the second.

The conditions were perfect making for a fantastic competition. It was great to have a lot of my regular anglers on board.
