Llangorse Kayak Fishing Predator Hunt 2016

Some would claim that anyone who wants to journey to mid Wales on a cloudy morning in March, and sit in the middle of a lake, is absolutely mad.

But, for our 56 competitors at this year's Llangorse Kayak Fishing Competition, there is no where else they'd rather be!

Llangorse provides some truly awe inspiring views no matter what the weather, and is in fact the largest natural lake in Wales.

The aim of the game is to land the 5 biggest fish (3 Pike and 2 Perch), giving you the biggest combined length overall.

This is not the only way to win a prize though...

  • Main Event - Total combined length of 3 Pike and 2 Perch.
  • Biggest Pike
  • Smallest Pike
  • Biggest Perch
  • Team Event - Combined length of 3 competitors biggest Pike.

The day started with a quick welcome meeting at 0900, and a briefing of the general competition rules. The all important safety rules were covered, and then it's off to the water.

First launch is 0945, with the more enthusiastic (less hungover) anglers ready and raring to go!

Anglers can use any legal method to catch a fish, but can only use a maximum of 2 rods at one time.

It's often a waiting game with fishing, so a good set of thermals and the right protective kit is essential. At this time of year we would always recommend a dry suit to keep your under layers completely dry at all times, but a good set of dry trousers and a jacket can work just as well as long as you're not planning on taking a big swim.

The final whistle blew at 1545, and competitors had to declare their fish by 1715 to be entered into the rankings.

After the results were announced and prizes awarded, it was off to the pub to watch the rugby and celebrate another top weekend, and a great competition hosted by the SWKA.
