Angling Trust Competitions Development Manager James Lewis commented;
‘”The concept of the competition was to create a contest with a broad appeal, I wanted to make an accessible carp contest with a low price point which will hopefully encourage more carpers into the competitive scene”.
There will be two price points for the competition (£100 for Angling Trust Members and £130 Non- Members) with the following launches;
Round 1 – Angling Trust members – Opened Tuesday 24th April at 10:30am.
