Nine Oaks launches Autumn Fishing Festival
What is believed to be the UK's first four-discipline one-week extravaganza of fishing with £2,000 prize money has been organised by Nine Oaks Fishery in West Wales.
Covering coarse, trout, beach and boat fishing, the festival will be five days of fishing starting on Monday September 19, 2005. The Festival will be restricted to 36 anglers who will be split into three groups of 12 anglers to form Groups A, B and C.
On the Monday, Groups A and B will fish a Coarse Match on one of our coarse lakes at Nine Oaks Fishery whilst Group C will fish a Trout Match on one of the fishery's trout waters.
On the Tuesday all 36 anglers will fish a Boat Match on the coast about a mile-and-a-half from Nine Oaks where several boats will be available.
On Wednesday, Groups B and C will fish a Coarse Match on one of the coarse lakes while Group A will fish a Trout Match on one of the trout waters.
On Thursday all 36 anglers will compete in a Beach Match on the coast and on Friday, Groups A and C will fish a Coarse Match on one of the coarse lakes while Group B will fish a Trout Match on one of ther trout waters.
Entry fee will be £145 inclusive of competition, peg and boat fees, but not accommodation or bait.
Daily prizes will be available for each match with a £50 first prize, followed by prizes of £30, £20 and £10. One point will be awarded for each first place, two for each second place down to 36 for each 36th place or non-entry.
Each angler will accumulate points and the anglker with the lowest points total will be declared the Festival Champion and receive a prize of £500, with runner up getting £300, Third place £200 and fourth place £100.
Additional prizes may also be offered. Optional pool fees are not included in the entrance fee.
