The Sections to be used in the Festival, Yesterday I took some time to visit and walk all of the sections that are to be used in the festival at the weekend. There are 6 sections in total 3 on the river and 3 on the lake complex. This festival is set up so you will fish one day on the river and the other day on the lakes.

I missed the last round due to illness so I was rather pleased to get back into the competition with a chance to make the final. I drew peg 81 and knew nothing about its position and previous form until I got to the draw and learned it fished very tough on round 4 however it was really cold and windy last time out. Today's weather was rather pleasant with a very slight breeze, grey with the promise of a little sun later. The section to my right contained Midlands Angling Supplies rod John Kilby,
A look back at the 2014 World Pairs, Now the dates have been announced Team MAS members Vince Callaghan and David Herron will fish this years event in September.
