ANGLING: Linear event set to top £25,000
10:30am Saturday 24th August 2013 in Sport
THIRTY-FOUR anglers and a similar number of the UK’s top carp hunters took part in this year’s Fish With The Stars event at Linear Fisheries’ Stantion Harcourt complex in aid of Motor Neuron Disease.
After raising £17,500 in 2011 and £23,000 last year, the third event is expected to top £25,000.
There were a good number of carp caught, up to 31lb.
Linear boss Len Gurd (pictured above, right, alongside Fran Gurd and Charles Reece) said: “We could never stage this event without the help and support of the Linear team, the stars who give their time, the angling trade, who donate so generously, the angling media, the MNDA volunteers and of course the anglers who help raise donations to be part of the event.”
