From Mon 15th To Wed 17th Aug, Linear will be hosting a "Fish with the Stars" charity event for the MNDA (Motor Neurone Disease Association) to be held on both the Brasenose Lakes. We already have promises from over thirty of the top carp angling names in the country to take part in this August event. Just some of the names already booked in are Lee Jackson, Bryan Jarrett, The O’Connors, The Don, Tim Paisley, Iain Macmillan, Chilly, Ian Russell, Nigel Sharpe and Jerry Hammond.

As a guideline Linear Fisheries will be happy with a £300 donation to fish the event but will be prepared to consider sums lower than this. The donation will need to be paid in advance and bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis. In addition to taking part in the event anyone paying the guideline price of £300 will receive a 48 hour voucher, worth up to £52 to fish Linear's day ticket waters at any time in the next year. The donation will include fishing with a well known angler for the event, food each day in the way of a BBQ/Hog Roast on the Monday and Tuesday evening and a BBQ breakfast on the Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. This is not a competition but more a social event and anglers taking part can negotiate moving around with different stars over the three days – with excellent chances of learning carp fishing techniques from the experts. All proceeds will be going to two branches of the MNDA and to raise even more money for this worthy charity we also plan to have an auction and sell raffle tickets.

Alvin Roy and his Jazz Band will be giving their time to play for us on the Tuesday evening and a selected number of guests will be invited along for this performance. Linear Fisheries also plan have a few other well known faces, like John Wilson and Martin Bowler, just wandering round giving their advice during the event.

MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE

Some of you maybe unaware of this dreadful disease that kills at least five people a day in this country and for which, at present, there is no cure. If you wish to learn more about MND, information can be found on the MND Association website.

Anybody interested in taking part and helping raise money for this excellent cause should email Fishery Officer Chris Blunt at chris.blunt2005@btconnect.com
