Sunday, March 4th 2012: Three way charity match on the river Avon at Barford.
This is for representatives of the Birmingham, Oxford and Shakespeare regions. Each angler pays £15 to fish, of which £3 will go to the Barford Club and the remainder will be divided equally between two very worthy cancer charities, the MacMillan Nurses and Cancer Research. There are 45 fishable pegs available so the hope is to have 15 members from each of the three regions. Prizes have already been offered by Pike & Predator Magazine. Joseph Arch pub in Barford can do baguettes afterwards - details of arrangements and location maps below.
No braided lines allowed - please load up with monofil before fishing.
Lures and all deadbaits are allowed, plus livebaits if caught at the venue on the day.
7.00 Gate opened. Please have your £15 ready as you enter. Correct change please.
7.30 Draw for pegs by the boathouse.
8.00 Gate locked. The club insists that we keep the gate locked when it is unattended. Latecomers please ring 07800 931783 to be let in. It may take a while.
5.00 Cease fishing. Prizes shortly afterwards at boathouse. Then move on to Joseph Arch pub.
The prizes are not enormous, so we simply trust anglers to record their own aggregate weights of pike and/or zander correctly. So far the prizes are a subscription to Pike & Predator Magazine, 2 books, and a further prize kindly promised by Bailey's tackle in Warwick.
Can you please let me know if you are coming by 6.00 p.m. on the evening of Thursday 1st March. Please be sure to let me know if you would like a baguette at the pub, as we need to ring them for them to buy in the right amount of meat/baguettes.
