Call for anglers to enter star-studded memorial match at prestigious midlands fishery.
Next month will see the Mallory Park Fisheries hold the eighth annual Ivan Marks Memorial match.
Taking place on Glebe Pools and Foundation Lake, the high-profile event is open to all anglers of any standard, but will also see a number of angling stars taking part, including full internationals from several countries.
Running over two days, May 19 and 20, the angler who records the biggest catch on either day will take the coveted Ivan Marks Memorial Trophy, awarded by Linda and Chris Marks.
The competition is limited to 100 pegs on both days, so anglers wishing to take part need to book up quickly. Cost of entry is £20, which goes to the Ivan Marks Memorial Fund – optional pools will also be on offer both days. This year will also see a substantial donation to the Angling Trust made from the money raised.
Anglers wishing to take part should send a cheque made payable to Ivan Marks Memorial Fund, along with a stamped, self addressed envelope and stipulations of what day they wish to enter (anglers are allowed to fish both days if they want), to:
Match Catch 14 The Green Syston Leicester LE7 1HQ Tel: 0116 260 0850
The draw on both days will be at The Glebe Fishery from 8.30am to 9.30am and fishing times are from 11.00am to 4.00pm.
