Linear Fisheries / Pike Anglers Club of Great Britain Junior Pike Match.

The annual Linear Fisheries / Pike Anglers Club of Great Britain junior pike fishing day was this year held on Manor Farm lake on Saturday 12th November. The event was organised by Linear bailiff Basil Hopkins with the assistance of head bailiff Roy Parsons and the Pike Anglers Club of Great Britain.

A total of 27 keen junior pike anglers attended on the day and although the fishing was hard a number of pike were landed to just short of double figures. Help and advice for the juniors was provided on the day by Nige Williams, Martin Bowler, John Everard and Mark Ackerley from the PAC.

Each junior went home with a generous goody bag of prizes, the organisers would like to thank Drennan International, Harris Sportsmail and the PAC for their donations on the day.

3rd place M. Wigham 1 fish 2lb

Thanks to everyone that was involved with the event, a great day was had by all. Hope to see you at next years match!!

Be Lucky,
Chris Blunt (Fishery Officer).
