Spend a day’s fishing for 2 people with an international or top angler!
This is a unique opportunity to spend a day fishing with an angler of your choice and it’s not just for you but it is for two people. Commencing on 1st July 2011 you can bid on Ebay for you and a friend, or a family member to fish with and ask as many questions as you like of your chosen angler. The day will also include, meeting your coach, having breakfast (if available on site) talking about and discussing the venue, signing autographs, taking photographs, and discussing tackle etc.
Over the next few weeks the Angling Trust have secured a promise from 12 of the best anglers in England to spend a day with Ebay winners to help fund three of our International coarse angling teams. The Ladies, Veterans and Anglers with Disabilities teams have been unable to find a sponsor this year, and have had to contribute themselves or to raise funds elsewhere. All the proceeds from these auctions will go towards helping support these teams as they go for gold in the World Angling Games in Italy from 28th August – 4th September 2011. Four top anglers will be offered each time coming from different parts of the country. Each Star angler will stipulate a venue and the highest bidder will then be contacted to make arrangements and mutually decide on a date for the outing to take place. The auction will be in three separate stages with the first of these auctions taking place starting on 1st July followed by 15th July and finally 29th July.
The first Ebay auction will start with:
• Tom Pickering fishing at Lindholme • Steve Gardener fishing at Willinghurst or Sumners • Stu Conroy fishing at Brookside • Des Shipp fishing at Ivy House Lakes Near Swindon
Further details of star anglers being offered for the next auctions will be published on the Angling Trust website and other media publications shortly. Please take this opportunity to HAVE A GREAT DAY’S fishing and remember all the proceeds will go towards helping fund our International coarse teams.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL AUCTIONS ARE DUE TO START ON JULY 1ST AT AROUND 9.00AM AND ARE ACTIVE FOR 10 DAYS.
