Species League is now Regional and National


The Species League became Regional in 2019 giving more opportunity for anglers to compete both nationally and regionally without travelling great distance to fish. In 2019 we are going from the following ports

  • Rhyl, North Wales,
  • Tenby, South Wales
  • Minehead, Bristol Channel
  • Newquay, Cornwall
  • Lyme Regis on Jurassic Coast
  • Weymouth, Dorset
  • Poole. Dorset
  • Lymington, Hampshire
  • Littlehampton, Sussex
  • Rye, Kent
  • Sheerness, Kent

We use some of the best Charter Boats who specialise in species events. During the year we try to cover as many types of fishing as possible from deep-sea anchoring for congers and tope, to drifting wrecks, bank fishing for flatfish, inshore for wrasse and mini species. Most competitions will cover a number of fishing types over different marks and during the summer months we regularly catch more than twenty species on a day.

Each competition is based upon the winner of each boat gaining 100% and all others score a percentage of the winners score. With 12 scores across the year (if we don’t lose an event due to weather) the National winner of the year has the best total of 9 percentages (this means if you have a bad day or miss an event you can drop this score and your two other low scores).
