Penn Sea League
Penn Sea League was established in 1999 by Sea Angler magazine and was taken over by Angling Trust on 1st January 2024.
Household names including Ian Golds, Joe Arch, Alan Price, Saul Page, and George Smith all have their names etched on the famous trophy after winning the league’s grand final.
This year’s point scoring draws to a close at the end of December and the Angling Trust will take charge of running the final in April 2024 alongside current Penn Sea League co-ordinator and England team manager Ian Bowell. Sea Angler Magazine will publish the final league table for 2023 in their February 4 issue and will continue to provide media support during 2024.
How Does It Work?
Points are awarded based on the number of anglers fishing an open match registered for the Penn Sea League and go to the top three anglers, zone winners and heaviest fish in registered open events held throughout the UK.
League scoring runs from January to December each year and the top 40 best point scorers from the season are invited to go head-to-head in a one-off grand final match hosted the following season.
Anglers who wish to take part in the competition from January 1, 2024, onwards will need to register with the Angling Trust in order to score points from the matches they fish. The competition will be open to ALL ANGLERS and membership of the Angling Trust will not be required to register.
