National angling competition comes to Kiveton Waters in South Yorkshire


A prestigious national angling competition is coming to South Yorkshire as Kiveton Waters, which sits alongside the Chesterfield Canal, hosts a qualifier for the 2015 Stillwater Championships.

Canal & River TrustThe Championships, organised jointly by the Canal & River Trust, the charity that cares for 2,000 miles of the nation’s waterways, and Angling Trust will see anglers battle it out on some of the country’s top fisheries

The Kiveton qualifier, taking place on Saturday 30th May, will give local anglers the opportunity to enter the Championships and be in with a chance of winning a share of the final’s £7,000 prize pot.  

The Championships will consist of 10 qualifying rounds taking place on some of the Canal & River Trust’s top Stillwater fisheries. Each qualifier will see 4 anglers go through to a 40 peg final held at Blythe Waters Fishery, near Solihull, on 17th October 2015.

John Ellis, National Fisheries & Angling Manager for the Canal & River Trust said; “This is a really exciting opportunity for anglers living in South Yorkshire to take their place in a major national competition. It’s a chance for people to enjoy some great match angling and, who knows, possibly win them the right to compete in the national final. Places are booking fast so I’d encourage anyone wishing to take part to get in touch as soon as possible.” 

David Kent Competitions Chair from the Angling Trust said; “It is vital that we provide as much opportunity as possible for anglers to compete on different venues. Kiveton is very different from all the others used for this Championship and so calls for some completely different skills and techniques – it promises to be a fascinating event.”

Entry is £25 per qualifier and tickets are available from
