Who Can Go Fishing? | Week 4 National Fishing Month 2022
It’s week 4 of National Fishing Month, and we answer the question: Who can go fishing? We meet Women’s Carp Team England who are preparing for this year’s Women’s Carp Fishing World Championships, which is being held here in England at Linear Fisheries in Oxford.
The event takes place from the 31st of August until the 3rd of September and will see eight nations taking part. This event is a massive milestone for women’s carp fishing and we would like to welcome spectators to the event to see the competition in progress and to support your home nation, of course.
This will probably be the only time England will host the event so it’s a great chance to see the Women’s Carp Team England in action. The 72hr endurance match starts with an opening ceremony and parades in Witney on Tuesday evening with the comp starting at 12.30pm on Wednesday the 31st of August. The event is on Brasenose Two and Hardwick Smiths on the Linear Complex. Linear Fisheries is also holding a shop open day on Saturday the 3rd of September and also a junior event which will tie in with the last day of the event. The match will finish at 12.30pm on Saturday.
We would love to see the carp fishing family get behind this event, show their support and if you can get along to Linear Fisheries to hopefully see on Team England ladies bring home the gold!
We also hear from Robson Green who is supporting Take a Friend Fishing 2022. #TakeaFriendFishing registration is open during National Fishing Month this August – get registered and start creating some amazing angling memories 👉 https://bit.ly/TAFFRegistrationNFM2022
