Lure Anglers Canal Club Individual Championship.
Radford Lock, 8.15am, Saturday November 7 2020
Join us at Radford Lock on Saturday November 7 for a chance to win the Kingfisher Trophy and be named the Lure Angler Canal Club’s individual champion 2020.
We’ll be fishing as individuals this time on a stretch of canal that has both produced some big fish and some great competition lengths in recent years.
NOTE: We will be adhering to the Angling Trust Covid-19 guidelines for lure matches. To help us keep to these guidelines and to improve the efficiency and enjoyment of the competition we will also be using the Score Fishing app to record fish captures, lengths and photos.
If you do not already have the app, you must download it and register with Score Fishing before the match. There is a one-off fee of £1.99 for the app. There is more information about how Score Fishing works on the website http://www.scorefishing.com and a video that shows how it works at https://youtu.be/HJo0bHyQ7_Y
If you have any issues with the app contact match secretary Derek Holmes at firstname.lastname@example.org
The match is open to members of the Lure Anglers Canal Club fishing individually and will be held on the following stretch of canal:
Grand Union bridge 41 Tachbrook Road , Leamington Spa, down to bridge 30 Welsh Road.
It is an individual competition in its own right. The 15 best-placed anglers will automatically qualify to take part in the LACC matchplay competition alongside the defending matchplay champion. Any places not taken up in the matchplay will go to the next best-placed angler.

All anglers must photograph all fish caught on the fish measure provided (on an unhooking mat) and with their competitor’s card in the picture using a camera or phone that allows photos to be viewed.
Fish are measured to the tip of the tale, and the measurement is rounded up to the nearest centimetre (eg 15.1cm is recorded as 16cm).
