July sees the Thorne Canal Individual Angling Championship take place on the Stainforth and Keadby Canal at Thorne.
The open match, to be held on Sunday 13th July on the Thorne A.A sections of the canal, is being sponsored by Paul’s Summer League and Thorne Angling Association.
All anglers are welcome and tickets for the match, which include pools, are £20, with £3.50 of that going to Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
Organisers say they are aiming for over 100 anglers taking part and that prize payouts should be substantial.
There will also be a raffle on the day, with items of fishing tackle to be won.
The canal has an outstanding reputation as a fishery, with organisers saying to anglers “the bream should also be feeding well in early July, so come along and support your local children’s hospice”.
The draw for the match will be held at 8.00am at Thornensians Rugby Club, Church Balk, Thorne.
Please phone Paul Caygill on 07976 779983 for tickets or further information.
