AT Loch Style Autumn Series – Draycote Water
The Angling Trust Loch Style Autumn Series brings you a selection of boat fishing matches at venues across England with a Grand Final on Saturday 3rd April 2021 at Grafham Water. These matches are aimed to give experienced and novice competition anglers the opportunity to compete in local matches before the season ends.
Each venue has its own set of rules so please read the descriptors and download the rules and format for each event carefully before entering.
Each competition will be fished from drifting boats, from 10am until 5pm (apart from the Rutland match on Nov 1st and Draycote 25th Oct which will be 9am – 4pm) using barbless or de-barbed hooks.
Entry is through the Angling Trust booking system only and is open to anglers aged 16 and over. Parental permission is required for anglers under aged of 18 and parents must email Kirsty Marshall at [email protected] to give their consent at the time of booking).
The entry fee for each match is £30.00 plus the fishing fee added to give you a total cost of fishing each event. There will be cash prizes in each qualifier and final for first to fourth placed anglers with the amount subject to the number of entries.
For each match to run there must be a minimum of 16 anglers booked in by the closing date. The closing date for each venue will be the Wednesday of the week before the match. There will be a live boat draw on the Angling Trust Competitions Facebook page for each match on the Friday which will also be displayed on the Angling Trust website and by the hosting venue.
20% of the £30.00 entry fee will be donated to TEFF, England Youth (EYF) and England Ladies (ELFF) to raise funds for each body. The more anglers that fish at each individual venue the greater the prize pot will be for that venue and the more money we will raise for our England teams.
