OK Classic Fishing Tournament 12 May



Now in its third year, the OK Classic Fishing Tournament goes from strength to strength. Sponsored by Johnson Outdoors UK and supported by AnglersAfloat there are once again some fantastic fishing kayaks and other great prizes to be won. Three of the latest fishing kayak designs from Ocean Kayak are the main prizes. First prize is the newest design in the Trident Ultra series, the Ocean Kayak Trident Ultra 4.3 which has, among its many features, an exciting performance hull. Second prize is the Ocean Kayak Prowler Elite 4.1 which is an upgraded version of the best selling Prowler 13 Angler. Third prize is the Ocean Kayak Tetra 12 Angler which is ideal for kayak angling and also a great all-round boat to enjoy on the water.

Last year there were 79 entries to the OK Classic, nearly twice as many as the year before, and £790 was raised for the local RNLI lifeboat station. The tournament takes place on the beautiful waters of Swanage Bay, Dorset and is open to all amateur kayak fishermen who would like to take part. This is a catch and release competition with competitors trying to catch as many different species as possible during an allotted time period on the day of the tournament. It costs £10 to enter and all entry fees will be donated to the local Swanage RNLI Lifeboat Station.

All competition entrants must be 18 or over and full entry details and the rules are available from the Johnson Outdoors UK website where entrants can also download the necessary competition forms. On the Johnson Outdoors UK and AnglersAfloat websites there will also be lots more information about the launch venue and local amenities.
