There`s a couple of Saturday matches in,as the best tides for the target species will mean fishing til late and most of us are not in work on Sundays.

Rules:
**We are using a measure and release format for the summer league....all fish from the list below to count with a minimum qualifying length of 25cm....
Bass
Bream (20cm minimum)
Bull Huss
Coal Fish
Cod
Conger eel
Dab
Dogfish (all count as 50cm)
Flounder
Garfish
Tub/Red Gurnard
Ling

Mullet
Plaice
Pollack
Pouting
Rockling
Skate / Ray.....measured across the wingspan

*Each match has a designated "target species" and for each of those fish you catch,your score will be doubled...i.e the target species for the first match at Seaforth is codling...catch a 40cm codling and you will be awarded 80cm*


1. Only 1 rod to be used at any time...a second rod can be set up
2. No bait restrictions
3. Max 3 hooks (Pennels count as 2 hooks)
4.Spinning/plugging is allowed (most spinners/plugs have one or two treble hooks attatched,which will be allowed as long as they are not also baited.....hokkais and feather rigs are allowed but only with a maximum of 3 hooks.
5. Spare traces can be set up
6. Organisers decision is final
7. No walking off until 30 mins before start time
8.Any angler leaving litter will be disqualified
9.A maximum of 2 dogfish/mackeral per angler to be recorded in any one match
10. pendulum casting allowed
11.Appropriate shockleader must be used
13.Accompanied juniors are welcome,but they must cast for themselves
While we want to keep the league as informal as possible,the rules must be adhered to,and as such,i will have no hesitation in disqualifying anyone who breaks them ;)

The winner (angler with the longest length) in each match will be awarded 10pts,with the second being awarded 9pts e.t.c down to 1pt for 10th place.
All anglers will also receive 1 pt for each match they fish.
To allow for holidays or other commitments,only 7 of the 9 matches will count towards your overall score,so you can drop your two worse scores if you fish all 9 matches
The angler with the highest total of points after all 7 matches will be declared the WSF/BLAS summer league winner and will receive the trophy.
In the event of a tie,the total length will be the deciding factor.
.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................. Each match is an individual open in it`s own right,so if you only want to fish 1 or 2 matches,you can but obviously you will not have a chance to win the overall league.
There will be an optional match entry fee of £6 with a 100% pay out for 1st longest fish,2nd longest fish,3rd longest fish,so everyone has a chance of winning a few beer tokens.

Anyone not registered or who does`nt want to fish the matches,is more than welcome to come along and fish with us just for the craic
