Match Fishing 2018/2019
Rochdale Walton Angling Society run trophy matches throughout the season on both of our club waters. There are no away matches planned this season.
We always welcome newcomers to match fishing, we have a laugh and don't take it too seriously. The pools are optional on home venues. We also run a bonus peg system every match but again, this is optional. Any member is welcome to fish the matches just for "pleasure" and if successful, will receive a trophy along with a Rochdale Angling Centre fishing voucher at the presentation night.
Main pool for all matches is £6 and the bonus peg is £2. (both optional)
Free membership and a trophy is presented to the winner of the club championship.
Last season's Club Champion was Gareth Watkins
All matches are run in accordance with the Angling Trusts Model match Rules plus the following:
1. No floating baits to be used on home waters.
2. Bloodworm and Joker allowed from 1st October.
3. Trout will not count.
Nets will be dipped and dried out of the peg on the day of the match. A shout out will be made 5 mins before the start of the match to notify anglers to put the keep nets in. No keep nets will be allowed before the net in shout.
