Filey Brigg Angling Society Summer Kayak Championship 2009

Discussion in 'Sea Fishing Forum - Shore, Boat & Kayak Fishing' started by quint, Apr 4, 2009.

    I am pleased to announce that Filey Brigg Angling Society will be staging an open kayak angling competition this summer during July - final details have yet to be decided but I can confirm the following:

    There will be substantial cash prizes

    The match will be a Heaviest Fish match

    The match will take place on Sunday 5th July, if bad weather means the match is postponed it will then be scheduled to be fished two weeks later on Sunday 19th July - both dates fall on a small flooding tide that is favourable for fishing around the brigg

    The match will have closed boundaries in view of safety - the fishing area will be adequate, incorporating sandy areas, the land rock at the back of brigg, and of course the brigg itself

    After the match there will be a bbq that will be included in the entrance fee

    All kayakers have to have adequate safety equipment and clothing

    Kayaks will be accessed from the car park above the brigg down a slipway so trolleys will be needed - cars will have to pay for an all day parking ticket - the car parking area is adjacent to a popular caravan site that allows camping - Country Park Caravan Park, Filey, YO149ET, 01723 513852, anyone wishing to camp and/or bring the family I suggest this will be the best site, I also advise early booking

    There will be a safety/marshal boat on the water whilst the match is on - it will be skippered by Smokey who kindly offered his services and has vast knowledge of the area and tidal currents - he is also going to do a plan of the area and species to help all anglers

    Please note the above is simply to confirm the match and the date(s) so that all potential kayakers can plan their summer, there will be a dedicated page in the near future with all details on and rules etc - I will be looking for any kind of sponsorship also, so if anyone can help it will be greatly appreciated - it is hoped that it will be an outstanding success and will become an annual event

    That sounds great quint, with the scar fishing festival and the kayak fishing league, the east coast is the place to be for kayak fishing. There are some dedicated people out there making our lives much more pleasurable, count me in, I`ll sort a bit of something for a prize and give it to Glenn at Runswick for you.

    Hope to join you there Quint. Great thing about Filey is that the wife and kid can come and sit on the sand, and makes the excuse to take part that much easier!

    you`re right there spud :yes:, there are some top blokes on the East coast willing, able and committed. This kayak fishing lark is becoming a bit of a national brotherhood and certain people are standing out by looking after our needs.

    Yes its brilliant news and I'm really looking forward to this one. FBAS should be really proud of themselves. I've said this before but the club is a perfect example of how an angling club should be run. Never scarred of change, and encouraging of all angling disciplines. Full marks and anything I can do to help just ask.

    Yep, definately up for this one, we have been in Filey today, booked Spuds and my caravan onto the Country Park while we were there.

    I think someone is keen on getting a little local knowledge prior to the event :whistle:

    Excuse me but I'm a reformed character, I have never been thrown off any camp site in my life - ok there was one time last year at the Scarborough Festival we got threatened with it but that wasn't my fault . . . . :cheesy:
