Next Generation Match 2018 produced great results!
The Next Generation Match sponsored by NASH on Saturday 25th - 26th August, was great fun and a total of 32 Carp were caught for prizes. 11 Adult & Junior pairs fished the Traditional Lake for 24 hours after the original date in June had to be postponed due to the fish spawning.
The NASH guys took their time with each pair, giving them tips and advice on their techniques. Not only did each pair get a great NASH goodie bag, they also had a breakfast bap delivered to their bivvy on Sunday Morning!
Nick Gildersleve from NASH took his time to help each pair, helping them catch some lovely Carp.

Stuart Mill (Fishery Manager) said, "Everyone enjoyed themselves and expressed an interest in joining in on another Next Gen Match nearer Winter time. We're in discussions with NASH to hold one in November nearer Christmas on Match Lake 1! We might link it in with a Big Lake Social match and instore rig clinics and more! Its just great to get the younger generation interested in fishing this way, its fun and informative too!"
