The Club holds matches on the second Sunday of every month (excluding August), at our White Sheet fishery.
These matches are popular with some of our game angling members and they are always a good social occasion.
If you are interested, please contact match organiser, Pat Damant, on 01425 273466 for further information, or simply arrive on the day. All standards welcomed, and you will find the anglers really helpful if you need assistance or tips.
How do they work?
The matches are informal, although run through the season and silverware is on offer in a number of categories. On the day – you register at the lake with the organiser who will collect the fee (see below). Registration is by 8:30, and the matches start at 9AM. You are free to fish any lake or part thereof, and may be fishing alongside fellow anglers not involved in the match. The match ends at 3PM at which point the fish are weighed, and results given. There is a premium on catching early.
A 5-fish ticket, although a small sweep is available with cash prizes for heaviest fish/best bag on the day. You may continue fishing after the match if you have not caught your 5 fish.
£20 will purchase a 5 fish ticket, but fishing is confined to the duration of the match. You are NOT permitted to continue fishing on this ticket before 9AM or after 3PM without buying an extra ticket.
