Just imagine what it would be like to spend a day fishing with your angling hero…

Thanks to the Angling Trust you don’t have to imagine – you can!

Eight legends of our sport have generously donated their time to support the Angling Trust’s Great Fishing Prize Draw 2021.

For just £5 a ticket you could win a day’s coaching with Bob Nudd at Decoy Lakes, a day chasing carp pbs with Ali Hamidi or maybe a day at Broadlands on the Test fishing for grayling with Paul Whitehouse.

Perhaps a day getting tips from World number 1 Steve Ringer is more your thing or spending 24hrs of Urban Banx with Alan Blair?

Whatever your preferred style of fishing; match, coarse, game or sea – we have a prize for you!

Simply check out the list of eight fabulous prizes below and decide which one you would like to win!  All proceeds from the draw will be used to continue our fight for fish and fishing.  As the past 12 months have shown, a strong, united voice for our sport is vital.
