The Filey Angling Festval has been running events since 1922.
The festival is fished in the first week in September and consists of 8 shore events, and 6 boating events.
The local clubs and some local buisness sponsor the competitions and there are some fantastic prizes to be won.
The date for the annual match is decided by the previous years winners and must take place between 1st January and 31st March - Rule 7 (below) and the match must not exceed 4 hours. Competing in the event is by invitation only.
Scarborough Rock Anglers Society stress that all competitors meet at the meeting point Oasis Cafe, North Marine Drive, Scarborough. The competition is open to all the members of an individual club and not for a select few,
A Clubs 'aggregate weight' is determined by dividing the total weight of fish caught by the number of anglers in each Team. The ideal Team is of eight anglers, any less and the Team must still pay for a Team of eight to enter and the aggregate is still worked out on a Team of eight. All entrants pay the £3.00 fee (2013) made up of £2.00 Team - Sweeps £0.50 aggregate weight - £0.50 Heaviest Single Fish.
A Team can have more than eight anglers but the total weight is then divided by that number in the Team. Any club with around 14 to 16 anglers (or more) would benefit from entering two Teams, rather than one large Team.
Clubs often run their own individual sweeps and these prizes can be awarded by the organizers during the presentation.
The weigh in takes place at the ScarboroughAnglers Social Club from 2pm to 3pm. A buffet is laid on by the organizers and there is always a raffle.
