A cost of £5 per angler, per venue must be paid at the time of registration.  If you have not raised  the  minimum level of sponsorship of £30 you will not be eligible  for any of the event prizes. The fishing fee must be paid at the venue on the day of the event. You may enter as many venues as you wish.
This is  a  fantastic opportunity to enjoy fishing at some of Scotland and Northern Ireland‘s best fly fishing venues.
