We have joined with the Angling Trust to announce details of the 2015 Canal Pairs Championships.
It’s been a long held ambition to see a major national event of this type launched on the canal networkJohn Ellis, national fisheries & angling manager
Each of our 11 regions will host a qualifying heat with the top five pairs going through to the 110 peg final. These are being held along the Birmingham & Fazeley Canal on Saturday 24th October.
The dates, venues and host clubs for the qualifiers and the final are listed below:
Our national fisheries & angling manager, John Ellis, said: ‘It’s been a long held ambition to see a major national event of this type launched on the canal network. I feel sure that many club anglers will fancy their chances on qualifying for the final on their own local patch and then who knows what might happen.”
Angling Trust senior competitions manager, Ben Thompson, said: “We are delighted to be working with the Canal & River Trust on this competition. Last year’s pilot programme on the Shropshire Union Canal went very well and we hope that the introduction of a series of qualifiers followed by a grand final will create opportunities for more anglers to compete in their local area.”
