Charity Fish-In

Here’s a chance that you really won’t want to miss! Linear Fisheries is holding a charity fish-in for the Motor Neurone Disease Association on August 15th, 16th and 17th and there will be up to 40 top anglers there to fish with. If you do want to bivvy up next to the likes of Darrell Peck, Tim Paisley, Bryan Jarrett, Lee Jackson or Nigel Sharp, then all you have to do is bid for a place (Linear suggests a donation of around £300 for a place). The event is being held on the two prolific Brasenose lakes – so fish action should be assured!
To keep you entertained and nourished, the Linear team has organized some live jazz and a fabulous hog roast! Once you’re assigned an angler, they’re all yours, unless you want to fish with a couple of high-profile anglers over the course of the three days. You’ll be able to negotiate with your fellow entrants to swap anglers if you so wish. Remember, this is a social event – not a match and every penny made will be donated to MNDA, so register your interest in taking part by emailing Len Gurd at len-gurd@linear-fisheries.co.uk. Alternatively, you can send your donation of £300 to Linear Fisheries MND Event, 7 Crow Lane, Lower End, Wavendon, Bucks, MK17 8AR. Cheques should be made payable to MND Association/ Linear.
Between now and the fish-in, Linear are also staging a big-prize raffle and auction, which includes prizes for the carp angler and non-angler alike. There will be a smaller raffle on the last day of the event too, hosted by Chris Ball. A full list of the prizes that have already been donated to the auction is printed below.
