Although we can still go fishing during this second lockdown, it can be tricky for many to get out. There’s no need to sit around moping though, why not take the opportunity to give your kit a much needed overhaul. If you are changing the lines on any of your reels, it’s really important that you dispose of the old line in a safe way. The same is true of any old spools of line you have.

This year's event will be held at Colemans Cottage Fishery in Essex on Saturday 6th October 2018. With Bob Nudd celebrating fishing with Browning for over 30 years this year as always we like to remember the heritage of our brand and reward our Browning supportive anglers too. Over the years we have seen poles aging over 30 years, some of which are immaculate and cared for and some proving they have stood the test of time and the rigors of match angling. So do you have a Browning "classic" pole still being used today or even one you never wanted to pass on? Yes! Then this event is for you.
