Essex-based tackle giants Guru are the new sponsors of one of White Acres’ three Spring festivals – replacing Dynamite Baits, who have supported the second of the three events for over a decade.
The venue hosts three five-day events during March and April each year, they come high on the list of unmissable meets for many of the country’s top match anglers, who can travel hundreds of miles to compete here from around the UK. These are the first big events of the year, seen by many as the prequel to the new commercial match season after the winter break.
The Guru Festival will be held over the week beginning Saturday 23rd April 2016, and entries are open now. So don’t delay if you fancy fishing against some of the top commercial anglers in the country!
Along with the Bait-Tech and Milo events, the Guru Festival is open to up to 180 anglers, and each attracts entries from some of the sport’s top names including Guru-backed Steve Ringer, Adam Rooney and Paul Holland, plus the cream of England’s matchmen crop – Alan Scotthorne, Darren Cox, Tommy Pickering and Des Shipp to name a few.
However, the events are open to all anglers who want to pitch their skills against the best, and with a bit of luck and a good draw, claim some amazing tackle prizes as well as a slice of the substantial prize money. The top-placed anglers also get an invitation to fish one of the biggest events in the UK match calendar – the Parkdean Masters/Preston Innovations Festival in October, where the top 24 anglers qualify for the chance to fish for £25,000 in the Parkdean Masters Final.
“I’m absolutely thrilled that Guru will be sponsoring one of the most prestigious festivals in the country, at one of the UK’s premier match and holiday venues.” said Adam Rooney, Guru brand manager. “I’m personally looking forward to going down in April next year, and fishing against some of the top match anglers around at one of my favourite venues, for the inaugural Guru Festival.”
“I’m absolutely delighted that Guru are involved with our spring festivals.” added Clint Elliott, fishery manager at White Acres. “I have a great relationship with Adam Rooney and Steve Ringer, and it’s great to be involved with a tackle company that put a lot of time and effort into the match fishing scene. I think it will be a great partnership.”
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dynamite Baits for its past sponsorship and support for our spring festivals.” he added.
