FARMOOR 2021 BANK CHALLENGE SUNDAY 30TH OF MAY

BANK SINGLES COMPETITION – FARMOOR 1 

This competition will be held at Oxfordshire’s Farmoor1 reservoir. The fishery offers an excellent bank set up for a fair competition, with all anglers facing identical bank conditions all around the lake. The match will be fished to the popular, peg rotating basis. Each angler will get 1 hours fishing time per peg, with a 15 minute time gap between pegs. The lake has been very well stocked, and hardly fished, with several more 1000's of fish going in before the match date.

Anybody can enter this event, and with the cash prize structure in place, anyone can win.

This time of year at Farmoor can offer amazing buzzer fishing, so it should make it an interesting competition !!!

Official practice day costs, £25 C&R for the day, must also be made payable to Craig Barr, as there will be no entry to the fishery office on the day, due to social distancing rules.
