Saturday 9th of February at Northcotton Fram, 7:30 pm ((UK time)) 

Winter is a grand time for coarse fishing and this year, we are honoured to be invited back to Northcotton Farm for our fifth Annual trout Tickle! As in previous years we shall be fishing for trout, with a special Golden Trout Award for the angler who nets the first Golden Trout. The last winner of this prestigious prize was Miss Nimelia in 2017. All levels are welcome however, and there will be a separate prize for those not yet versed in the art of Trout fishing. 

We at the Shire Angling Club have been working closely with Albin Northcotton to make sure the pond was ready for the match. A great deal of weed has been cleared and the pond restocked with many trout, of all species and hue. An exciting match is promised. For those new to the farm, follow the road up the hill to the left as you enter Oatbarton. Take the first gate on the left at the top of the hill, turn right after then second gate, then left after the third. The farm is at the top of the hill.

No need to register, just turn up with warm clothing and your fishing gear.
