WHITE ACRES

Angling Times (UK) - - MATCH NEWS -

Be­fore the abo­li­tion of the closed sea­son on still­wa­ters, Corn­wall was a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for an­glers and hol­i­day park White Acres was one of the best, with a boom­ing fes­ti­val scene.

Fast-for­ward 20-odd years and ‘The Acres’ re­mains a high­light of many peo­ple’s fish­ing year.

Six events are run­ning across the year, all backed by big tackle firms. An­glers fish over five days with the high­est points scorer be­ing crowned cham­pion af­ter their worst score of the week is dis­carded. Ac­com­mo­da­tion and evening en­ter­tain­ment is avail­able on site and much of the fish­ing is only a short drive away from your hol­i­day home.

Pick of the events is un­doubt­edly the Pre­ston In­no­va­tions week in Oc­to­ber, cul­mi­nat­ing in the Parkdean Masters Fi­nal fished by the top 25 an­glers from the fes­ti­val.

This one-off match packs a £25,000 top prize, won in 2018 by Craig Ed­munds.
