10,000 tags Angling Competition

Updated: 14th, March 2006
A picture of the main prize on offer in the 10K angling competitionNineoaks Fishery is a participating fishery in the Uk's biggest ever Coarse Angling competition - the 10K Tags.

The competition start-date is now the 15th, April 2006.

Whereas most angling competitions are participated in by dedicated matchmen and won by the few serious amateurs and semi-professionals - the 10,000 Tags™ is one competition that breaks the mould of the match fishing format and opens the "match" for everyone, everywhere!

10,000 Tags™, the brainchild of Greg Wimbourne (of Tacklemania Road Shows fame), has come up with the format of the first true national event open to all. Following the same principles behind Tacklemania - giving the maximum advantage to the most people possible - Greg aims to spread the fun in fishing in the same way.

“Fishing is the UK’s largest participant sport, and it deserves a big competition to reflect this fact” says Greg. “For some time I’ve felt that fishing competitions should be about adding fun to our sport rather than just catering for the few top anglers. We want to ensure that as many people as possible could not only fish in but most importantly, also win prizes”.

The 10,000 Tags™ competition definitely fits the bill. The concept is simple - big numbers - 10,000 fish will be tagged at 200 fisheries across England and Wales. Each tagged fish caught equals one of 10,000 prizes worth a total of £100,000 -- So while enjoying your favourite sport you have the chance of winning some truly amazing top prizes in the Grand Draw - including a fantastic Land Rover “Freelander” worth £19,500!

Greg says “friends and families that fish together now have an extra sporting interest - the biggest thing in the lake this year - the 10,000 Tags™ competition. We've enjoyed bringing it together, so we are sure they will enjoy the challenge!

From Saturday 15th, April 2006 the UK’S BIGGEST COARSE ANGLING COMPETITION EVER will commence. I’m sure that you have already realised this is by far, the largest prize fund ever in a UK fishing competition.
