South West Lakes Trust is delighted to announce a new sponsor for its carp competitions in
The Trust has
teamed up with Carp fishing giants Mainline to offer a new series for
competitors branded the
‘Mainline Baits Carp Open’.
There will be three Mainline Carp Opens in 2019 which will run on the following dates: 29-31 March, 5
-7 July and 4-6 October. The series is based at 81acre complex Upper Tamar
Lake on the Cornwall and Devon border which is stocked with carp to 36lbs.
Ben Smeeth, Head of Angling for South West Lakes Trust, said, ‘I am absolutely delighted
to be involved with Mainline Baits for these competitions moving forwards. When the
opportunity arose to work together and after discussions
went really well it was an easy decision for me to make. I am excited by what Mainline can offer and look forward to
building something special for everyone involved. Mainline Baits are arguably the largest supplier of carp fishing bait in the UK and across the world and already they have agreed to putting up some great prizes for 2019 which will benefit everyone who enters one of thecompetitions’.
Kev Knight from Mainline Baits, said,
“Having heard about the great competitions and carp matches that Ben, Gary and team of volunteer bailiffs had been providing
down at Tamar Lakes, we were more than happy to be able to lend our support and sponsorship of the Carp Open events. Funnily enough we’ve attracted a number of good anglers from Devon, Cornwall and the south west over the years, making some good friends along the way. So it was no surprise to us that a ‘friendly’ atmosphere is one the things the Carp Open at Tamar is best known for –
so we’re very proud to be helping these events continue.”
Each competition will offer competitors a chance to win a share of £3500 in prize money.
The winners will scoop £2000, runners up £1000 and third place £500. There will be section prizes sponsored by Mainline and also goody bags for everyone who enters with some fantastic Mainline products in each one!
