Arden Fisheries located at Snitterfield Fruit Farm between Alcester and Warwick is beginning a series of open matches starting this weekend and then running every Saturday until further notice.

Owner Steve Dawkes plans to spread the matches around The Oak, Foxes and his silver fish water Archers, with 30lb-40lb expected to be needed to win. Steve told me that he hopes to open a clubhouse and a sixth pool at the complex in 2010.

The £15 all-in events kick off at 9.30am – for more information call Steve on 07738 007552.
