Welcome to the Dermot Hughes Memorial Fishing Competition Page

It gives me great pleasure to announce the return of the Dermot Hughes (Bisto) Memorial Fishing Competition. It’s been a few years since we last got together in memory of our favourite fishing buddy and this year through consultation with his friends and family we hope to do some good work for a worthy cause on top of a good excuse for a day of fishing and an evenings banter. 

The winner will be the person with the heaviest combined weight of fish from the day’s fishing so it’s up to you how you achieve this, you can fish for pike, course or a combination. The lake  boasts a variety of coarse fish including pike, perch, roach, tench, eel and carp.

Entry Fee £15 Per Person

1st Prize £100

2nd Prize £50
