Sign up now for the 2019 individual championship

Sign up now for this year’s LACC individual championships at Warwick on Sunday May 12.

This is your chance to be crowned LACC individual champion for the 2019/20 season and to gain entry to our popular matchplay championship.

We’re holding the individual championship earlier this year so we can get the matchplay rounds in during the autumn and early winter when fishing is at its best.

The 15 best-placed contestants on May 12 will be entered into the matchplay competition where they will challenge last year’s winner and automatic qualifier Vidar Thomassen for the matchplay trophy.

The individual championship on May 12 is also a competition in its own right, won last year by Derek Holmes.

Fishing is between bridges 54 at Hatton and 44 at Myton Road, Leamington. The start time is slightly earlier than normal, 7.15am meet for an 8am start. There’s no practising by match competitors from May 3.

Get your names down for the 2019/20 pairs league

We’re open for booking for the new season’s Lure Anglers Canal Club pairs league for club members. Round 1 is at Hatton Locks on Saturday March 16. All the usual rules apply, with one slight change agreed at the club’s AGM last week. Largest pike caught will no longer qualify for five bonus points, as it’s more often than not the only pike caught. Pike will continue to count towards overall length as normal.

We’ll be fishing from bridge 51 in the north down to bridge 61 on the outskirts of Warwick, giving us five miles of fishing. Parking will be at the pay and display at Hatton locks. Don’t forget, no fishing on the stretch for competitors from March 7.
