HAVE you en­tered the Canal Pairs Cham­pi­onship yet?

The na­tion’s big­gest canal angling com­pe­ti­tion has ex­panded this year and in­cludes re­gional qual­i­fy­ing heats in Wales, Scot­land and Ire­land, as well as 12 heats in Eng­land.

Or­gan­ised by the Canal & River Trust and the Angling Trust, the Cham­pi­onship will see five pairs in each heat qual­ify for the grand fi­nal in October, held on the Stafford­shire & Worces­ter­shire Canal. The Ju­nior Canal Cham­pi­onship will be fished on the same venue, on the same day.

Prize money in 2016 is also in­creas­ing and, sub­ject to en­try, the top four pairs could share a to­tal of £15,000.

The first qual­i­fier is hosted by Hod­net Angling Club and will take place on the Shropshire Union Canal on Satur­day, July 2.

A full list of venues can be found on the Trust web­site and en­tries can be made on 0115 906 1301.
