Winter League 2006 - Announcement/Rules

Postby chriswsf » Thu Aug 03, 2006 5:04 pm

This year the Wirral Sea Fishing winter leagues takes on a new dimension, gone are the days that you need the best bait or the best local knowledge of the venue, this year the Ethos is on meeting to fish. Lots of anglers have taken part in the league over the last few years and we have noticed that this has become more of a social event rather than a series of match’s, the venues and dates will remain the same, however the league will be FREE to enter and there will be no need to open the venues right up, so it can be kept nice and tight, this will allow anglers to fish as well as chat, there will still be a small element of competition both on the day as well as throughout the series of events.
Each date will have an optional £2.00 pool that will be shared on the day between the heaviest flat and round fish, we will still have a weigh in and those weighing in will be issued with points from 10 down to 1, the rule of 2 fish to the weigh in will remain and thanks to our sponsors at Moreton Angling Centre the winner will receive the Winter Shield as well as a tackle prize and overall 2nd and 3rd will also receive tackle prizes.
We feel that this will bring a very friendly atmosphere to the events and will allow anglers to meet each other and share tips as we have removed most of the competition element.


1. Only 1 rod to be used at any time (spare can be set up but it must have no line threaded through the eyes or end tackle attached
2. No bait restrictions
3. Max 2 hooks
4. Spare traces can be set up
5. 2 fish only to the weigh in (1 flat and/or 1 round)
6. All fish to be kept by the organisers until after the weigh in has finished
7. Organisers decision is final
8. Overall League is free to enter, with optional pool on the day
9. No walking off until 30 mins before start time
10.Entries for the pairs comp will close 40 mins before match time
11.Any angler leaving litter will be disqualified
12.Fish such as dogs/rays e.t.c can be weighed by one of the organisers and returned
**** Anyone seen driving or parking on the prom for the Seacombe/Vale Park matches will be refused entry/disqualified without exception****
