Fancy a weekend away fishing one of the most scenic freshwater venues in the United Kingdom?, why not go and participate in the Esthwaite Grand Slam on the 30/31st May.
The event has attracted sponsorship from Lowrance with several great prizes up for grabs. All competitors will receive a detailed chart of Esthwaite Water, a Lowrance buff and a fish measure to help them get underway.
It provides the opportunity to fish for two days chasing Pike, Perch and Trout and when you’re not fishing you can chill out on the FREE lakeside campsite. Seriously, it doesn’t get much better. The general format for the competition will include catching three predatory species from the lake, Trout, Perch and Pike which must be photographed and measured. The winner of the grand slam will be the longest combined length of all the target species. Fishery rules of fly, spin and worm will apply.
This will be a superb opportunity for kayak anglers to fish this prolific venue and meet other like minded kayak anglers from around the country.
Detailed mapping is available from Lowrance through their Insight Genesis mapping and can be downloaded for free from the Insight page. Just sign up for free and go to the Social Mapping area and locate the relevant map. You should find something very close to the map below. It’s not fully complete, though it get added to by Insight Genesis users and will grow in size and detail over time.
Also, those competitors who have a suitable Lowrance electronics unit can be issued with a pre-loaded mapping card for the duration of the competition.
See you there!
