FISH for HEROES Arnside 2011

Well what can i say :thumbs:

What a hectic week it has been on the FISH for HEROES Event.

I have had quite a few shocks this week but with these shocks came happiness :)

This last week the event planning has gone lovely, I thought i was gonna find this all hard work with only me doing the running of it now but may i say. YES its bloody hard work but YES its bloody worth it, Anyway hear's whats happened over the last week on the event side.

Firstly I would like to send out thanks to the following people for there very kind donations.

  • Chris Wareing - For donating 2 Conoflex Foo Fighters ( 1 which was brand new and still had tags) Both these rods have now gone with one going to crazyplums :)

  • Chris Wareing - For donating a Conoflex flatty fanatic, Again a brand new rod which sold in auction but still in communication regarding payment.

  • Chris Wareing - For donating the FIRST EVER PATHFINDER 8 9'6 UPTIDING ROD, This rod is currently on the well known site item number 320761894026.

  • John Mcbride - For donating 2 Conoflex Foo Fighters, These rods are still available.

  • Gareth @ Menai Angling - For donating a Storm Firetip Pro Bass 11ft rod, This rod will go to auction on the day of the event unless someone makes me an offer on the rod via PM on here.

  • Lizard Rigs - Who have agreed to donate some items to us ( Unknown yet but will let you all know as soon as i find out )
  • Hugh @ Mighty Bright - For donating the garments that are currently under auction on here, These garments so far have raised over £100 ( Please keep Bidding )

  • Ethic Star - Who are donating 30 hoodies to the event that will all be printed as current items from mightybright.

  • Fladen Fishing - Who have agreed to send out some items to muself which i will let you all know what they are when i receive them.

  • Quayside Group - Who have agreed to donate another 10 hoodies printed by themselves, I am currently trying to get these changed to either caps or beenie hats has we already have another 30 on order.

I think that is it atm and im sorry if i have missed anyone out of the list but you can be sure you will be on the next update list :punk:

So after this week and previous weeks for that matter, the event has gone from slowly declining to dropping a gear and taking back off.

Now this wouldn't be possible without the support of everyone mentioned in this thread as they have made this event a great success.

I also have other items on ebay which are going rather well atm and as soon as all items end on ebay i shall give the grand total of money raised through ebay goods.

(PS if anyone would want one of the hoodies we are getting these will be sold at a price yet to be decided, If you would like one please pm me your size so i can make sure i order the correct sizes. )

If no-one pm's me they will be random sizes and it will be first come first served :)

Until the next update

Tight Lines All

Fish for Heroes 1st Annual Match

Match Fishing Times :- 10:30 - 15:30
High Tide - Around 12:00 (Can depend on conditions)

• This is a 2 Hook Max match, If possible NO team should have two anglers fishing next to each other.

• Fish should be handled as little as possible and treated with care. The use of a disgorger and a damp cloth should be encouraged.

• All competitors must have an official recognised measure.

• Fish are measured from the tip of the nose to the maximum tip of the tail and verified by the angler to the right, the length recorded should be rounded down to the nearest full centimetre. In the event of a dispute on size a master steward or both adjacent anglers should be used to arbitrate.

• The fish should be returned to the sea immediately after being measured and recorded. It is the responsibility of both the angler and steward to ensure that the fish swims away. Dead fish should be picked up, have its tail cut, and be retained by the steward for disposal.

• Fish should be recorded and returned before the next cast is retrieved.

• At the end of the competition match cards should be underlined immediately below the last fish recorded and signed by the steward or adjacent angler. In events where the stewards are in possession of the cards then the angler must sign for his own fish.

• Competitors should be given one point per centimetre of fish recorded. The result being decided by the competitor with the most points. Where there is a tie on points then the competitor with the most number of fish will be the winner, if there is also a tie on the number of fish then the winner will be the one with the longest fish. If there is still a tie after this the prize should be shared..

Organisers can at their discretion

• Allow competitors to retain fish required for consumption. Where this is allowed, the fish should have its tail cut in front of the steward or adjacent angler.

• Set size limits below the minimum DEFRA sizes as long as all fish are returned to the sea after being recorded and provided that written agreement has been obtained from the local DEFRA Regional Office.

• Award points per fish and give a nominal number of points for undersized fish that are not measured.

• Give a standard size for fish. This could be useful where difficult fish to measure are likely to be caught such as eels and dogfish.

• Set a minimum hook size.

• Operate a weigh and return competition, but this would necessitate enough suitable sets of scales and stewards on the beach during the competition.

• It is the organiser’s responsibility to ensure that all competitors are made fully aware of the system used in the competition.
