Welcome to the White Acres Guru festival 2016. We are really excited that new to 2016 we have the dynamic tackle company Guru as our new festival sponsor.
On top of our usual pay-out for top 3 Guru have very generously added an extra £1000 to the overall winner, a further £750 to second place and an extra £500 to whomever finishes third, as if that’s not enough there are £2000 worth of prizes for the top 10 and each angler has received a goody box worth £10!
We have an almost full house of 180 anglers fishing but with some last minute cancellations we are just a few anglers short. They’ll be fishing over 5 days in 9 peg sections rotating daily between lakes Pollawyn, Twin Oaks/Trelawney Jennys/Trewaters, Porth and Bolingey.
Read on for the first day’s action…
