Angling Trust British Pike Championships
The British Pike Championships
The British Pike Championships was set up over 30 years ago with the aim of raising valuable funds for the ACA, which has now been renamed Fish Legal and is the legal arm of the Angling Trust in England.
The British Pike Championship is the largest predator competition in Europe.
The British Pike Final will be taking place on Saturday 4th November 2017.
This year there will be no coupon advertised in the Angling Times to enter the final. Further details will be advertised here later in the year of 'how to book your place in the final' once you have qualified from a qualifier.
Regional qualifier matches are held at fisheries all over the UK during the pike season by volunteer organisers, with those who qualify being eligible to fish the pike final held the following November. The final usually sees over 200 anglers competing for the coveted winner’s trophy and Pike Championship title.
Each year, the British Pike Championships raises funds to fight pollution and campaign to protect fisheries. The money raised helps support our in-house legal team, which takes on legal cases against big businesses on behalf of our member angling clubs. All of the compensation reclaimed is usually put straight back into restoring the affected fisheries and safeguarding the future of many waters.
Organising regional qualifier matches is a really good way of raising
funds to support our work and at the same time a good way of getting
anglers to fish new venues.
