New Format For The Prestigious Preston Innovations Pole Fishing Pairs Competition.

We are excited to announce a new format for the Preston Innovations Pole Fishing Pairs competition. In a break from our old league-style format, this year we are holding a series of qualifiers up and down the country, with the top three pairs from each qualifying for the Grand Final at Preston Innovations Woodland View Fishery on Saturday, March 4th.

Here, subject to turnout, and thanks to generous backing from the sponsors Preston Innovations, we will pay out over £11,000 in cash with nine pairs being paid out. The winning pair will walk away with £4,000 and the prestigious Preston Innovations Pole Fishing Pairs trophy.

The rules are simple: each match is pole only, carp don’t count (F1s do) and the only baits allowed are maggots, corn, casters, pinkies, worms, bloodworm and joker, and groundbait.

Each qualifying match will be split in half, with you and your partner each fishing a different section. The contest will be decided on cumulative weight, so whatever weight you catch will be added to your partner’s weight, and the three pairs with the biggest weight from each round will make it through to the final.
