Anglers should follow the specific guidance which applies to the place in which they live. The UK government have made clear that individuals must take responsibility for their own actions and we would ask anglers not to undermine this point by breaking government guidance on travel.
If an angler were found to have travelled illegally then this would be a police matter and we would work with the police as requested to provide any information we were in possession of. It is entirely possible that should an angler travel illegally to fish a competition that they could be disqualified and it is for this reason we are offering anglers travelling from outside of England to fish our competitions the opportunity to claim a full refund within timescales laid out.

Cancellation/Refunds: Please note: If you wish to cancel a ticket, please inform [email protected] by email, and include your name, the name of the qualifier you would like to cancel, your membership number & post code. We require 7 days notice prior to the qualifier in order to process a refund. Any notification outside of this time scale will not be entitled to receive a refund. Please note: There is no secondary market for the sale or transfer of any tickets.

Please note that as in 2019, there are no reserve lists for 2020.
