East Yorkshire Angling Championship 6-7th October 2012

Your chance to help the Environment Agency an The East Yorkshire Chalk Rivers Trust carry out important fish survey work and fish in one of the North's top river matches.

On Saturday 6th October 2012 anglers are invited to fish the Yorkshire Derwent Angling Championship. The following day (Sunday 7th October) anglers will be hotly contesting the Second Edition of the River Hull Angling Championship. With a £1000 first prize on offer both days the event is sure to prove popular with the both local match anglers and those from across the country. To spice up the competition even further, and give the event a true festival feel EYevents, have provided a further £1000 first prize for the best placed angler, for those fishing both matches. That one skilful and lucky angler will be the first to be crowned the 'Champion of East Yorkshire.

To do well over the weekend anglers will have to have the full compliment of running water skills. With sections on the Derwent being pegged over some 40km of river, anglers will have to be prepared to target everything from specimen size perch, chub and barbel in the upper sections on the bomb and big baits to catching mix bags of roach, dace and bream in the lower reaches on long rod and pole tactics. Local experts are unsure where the winner will come from, and surprises are to be expected.
With the River Hull Championship being pegged on the both the slow flowing upper river and also the powerful tidal river, the successful angler will have to be equally skilled and willing to adapt their tactics throughout the match to keep the quality roach coming to the net. It really is one of the ultimate match angling challenges left on the modern river match anglers' calendar!
Tickets for each match are £5, with optional pools of £10 per match being run on the day, which will be paid out to the top 3 anglers in each sections, so every angler will have something to fish for even if they do not draw on a shoal of feeding bream. Tickets for both matches are still on sale till Monday 1st October in tackle shops in Hull, York and Leeds, or by ringing Paul Caygill on 07976 779983.
Both matches are being run in conjunction with the East Yorkshire Chalk Rivers Trust (EYCRT) and the Environment Agency in order to survey both rivers' fish stocks.  The information on the status and distribution of the fish populations obtained from last years River Hull event has allowed the Trust and the Agency to further improving the fish stocks and angling opportunities on the river.
For further information on the event please contact Paul Caygill Match Co-ordinator on 07976 779983.
