Yorkshire fishery announces brand new competition specifically for club anglers.
A popular northern fishery has announced it will be running a series of matches towards the end of the year specifically for club anglers.
The Oaks Lakes fishery at Sessay near Thirsk in North Yorkshire will be running the competition to give ‘normal’ anglers a chance at winning, as co-owner of the fishery, Tom Kay, told Match Fishing.
“The open matches that we hold have anglers fishing them that are very good and it can leave some of the others feeling that they’re never going to have a chance of winning anything,” said Tom. “This new series is designed just for club anglers, none of the open match anglers will be allowed to fish it, which we give the competitors a more even playing field.”
Limited to 40 anglers, the series starts on July 7, with matches being fished every other Saturday from then on until September 29. Based on section points, the top 20 anglers from the series will then go into a final on October 6.
The matches will be held on new lakes at The Oaks Lakes complex that are only lightly fished and good sport is expected for those taking part.
Places for the competition will be allocated on a first come first served basis, for more details and to book your place call Mark England on 07793322006.
