Welcome to the White Acres Milo Festival 2015. We have a full house this week, with just 1 last minute cancellation, there are 179 anglers fishing over 5 days in 9 peg sections rotating daily on lakes Pollawyn, Twin Oaks/Trelawney, Canal/Acorn/Trewaters, Porth and Bolingey.
Last week’s Dynamite Baits festival saw some brilliant weights and great weather so pressure is on for this week to match up. The sun has been shining so far so fingers crossed it will stay put.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Milo for sponsoring this festival.

Congratulations to Jamie Wilde for winning the Milo festival taking home his £3,000 prize to go with the £25,000 he won here in October 2014 on the Parkdean Masters. Finishing a close second place was Rob Jones with a total weight of 425lb 5oz and in third place was John Whincup with a huge overall weight of 613lb 1oz well done guys.
