How it works.

The competition fee is £1.00 each match (optional) plus your match fee.

Each match pool will contain one tagged fish to start (Suez, Moors, Panama and Arena) if an angler has paid into the competition and catches one of these fish, they will receive the total accumulated cash pot for that particular lake.

Only weekend and bank holiday opens will count.

If a tagged fish is caught make sure it is retained as normal and verified at the weigh in.

The fishery has donated a sum to each cash pot the get it started so from Saturday 26th November the competition is open.
