About the Species League

The Species League started in 2005 with a small group of anglers who wanted to have a species boat competition once a month. Over the years more anglers have joined in and the league has grown attracting anglers from all over the UK and in 2019 we have gone Regional.

We go from various ports and 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.
