– First Draw (Sat March 1st)
In this meeting there will be a draw to produce the 16 matched pair of anglers. The first drawn angler will select the first venue in conjunction with the drawn opposition angler to arrange their first match. Anglers will be notified of their draw along with a contact number for their opposing angler.

Each drawn pair will fish against each other Twice – once each at each others chosen venue. The first draw fish-off can be anytime to suit them, but both venues must be fished between March 7th – May 31st. Selected venues, dates and times must be agreed by both anglers and this information should be sent to the committee via PM. However, no participating angler should seek to create any unfair advantage for themselves over others, by selecting a venue that could be disadvantageous to the other. Individual anglers’ physical capabilities must be taken into account.
– Results must then be relayed back to the organizers after both matches are completed.
– No venue can be chosen by an angler twice throughout the whole competition.
– Matches can be between 4 and 6 hours, this is up to the two participating anglers. However both matches must be of equal duration.
– It is the anglers responsibility to get to a venue on time, if only one angler is at a venue at the agreed upon time, it is at his discretion whether he starts or not. His fish must be kept in a bucket until the other angler arrives. This rule is in place only where adequate directions are provided by the home angler.

Fish-Off – Second Draw
The 12th June meeting will see a draw for the successful 16 anglers who will be required to fish a further two matches (8 pairs). The matches can start as soon as is practical after the meeting, but both the venues must be completed by 31st August.

Fish-Off – Third Draw
The 5th September meeting will see the draw for the remaining 8 anglers (4pairs). These anglers will need to complete their two matches by the end of October.

The Final
The final 4 anglers will fish-off in a one off 5 hour match to establish the top four placing. The fish-off will take place in end of October or early November. Venue will be decided by the four anglers nominating a venue each and one venue will then be drawn out of a hat.


1. Entry to the knockout competition means an acceptance of the rules and conditions.
2. One rod and three hooks only.
3. No wading above knee height.
4. Both venues must be decided before either competition is held.

7. All competitors must have a recognized fish measure in centimetres. Fish are to be measured from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail; the length should be ‘rounded down’ to the nearest full centimetre.
8. In the event of a draw a fish count will decide the winners.
9. Each angler should act as a steward to the other, fishing no more than 50 yards apart and should measure, record and add the running total of each others catches. Catch and release is encouraged and competitors may assist each other with landing of fish if necessary.
10. Mackerel,Sandeel, weaver and sea trout will not qualify for measuring.
11. Matches will be 4 hours minimum and 6 hours maximum.

13. Fish-off dates will be strictly adhered to.
14. Please take your litter home with you.
15. Competitors are expected to write a full report in the shore reports section
