Anglers Profile's winter social
nets a few pounds

Many socials are held across the UK by different groups and companies, but how many socials have fifteen sponsors where every angler receives free food every day and, in the evening, gather around with all the other anglers to watch the rugby? Well this one had all of this and much more.

Taking place on November 19 at White Springs Fishery, Swansea, the social included a charity match for the Cardiff Children's Care Unit with a mix of top anglers from around the country including Alan Price. White Springs is famous for holding some really top quality fish ranging from early 10lb to large 42lb carp and, as you can imagine, everyone was itching to fish and get the chance of bagging a big fish and taking home gold.

The event lasted for two days and it was 48 hours of pure enjoyment. Vince, the fishery owner, visited daily with his charity bucket - raffle tickets were sold, sponsorship forms were collected, White Springs really is the perfect location as it has maximum security assuring all anglers cars and gear is safe.

Plenty of bream were pulled out and carp were caught ranging between 12lb to 14lb. Gareth Davies caught three and Michael Rob caught one with Gareth winning the event and pocketing 100 and lots of goodies. Michael Rob won 75 along with his goodies and third place was donated to charity.

Raffle prizes included products from Korda, Hinders and Pro-logic and over 1,000 was raised for the charity.

During the event, main sponsor Lewis Pies gave out free pies, pasties, rissoles and sausage rolls. Other sponsors gave prizes for the raffle and winning positions and Anglers Profile would like to thank all sponsors for helping out and the kind hospitality from Vince of White Springs for the free cuppas.
