Do you enjoy your river fishing and like a bit of friendly competition? If so then you may want to enter this years IFM Big River Fish Hunt.

The IFM have been exploring ways to increase the awareness and knowledge of different fish species amongst our members and non members alike. To this end we have decided to run a river angling competition over the coming river season.
We hope that this competition will also encourage some of our non-angling members to get out and give fishing a go.
The competition will focus primarily on freshwater species and to this end we have decided to time the competition to coincide with the start of the new coarse fishing season.

The competition is pretty straight forward – the aim is to capture, using rod and line techniques (no electric fishing or netting 😡), as many different species as possible during the period 16th June 2018 to 15th March 2019 inclusive.

It is FREE for IFM Members and there is a small admin charge of £5 for non members. We have a number of prizes that will be unveiled over the coming weeks. The first prize is an all expenses paid trip to the IFM 50th Anniversary Conference next October.

All the details are on the website and happy hunting.

And please don’t forget your rod licence if you are going out this weekend.
