The Go Fishing Show is looking to find an Angling Ambassador to represent the sport at a national level.
Avid anglers are invited to tell the team at The Go Fishing Show why they deserve to become an Angling Ambassador by emailing details of the lengths they go to in promoting the pastime in their local area.
Judges will shortlist just five finalists who will each receive a pair of tickets to the show on 17 and 18 July and a money can’t buy prize will be given to one overall winner along with £2,000 worth of angling prizes.
Show organiser, Jo Burton, says the competition will highlight the high levels of passion and knowledge people have for fishing. She comments: “We regularly receive feedback from the public about ways in which they are promoting angling in their local area demonstrating that it is one of Britain’s biggest and most popular leisure activities.
“Examples range from submitting angling competition summaries to local newspapers to establishing groups for young people to take up fishing. We want to share the best examples of people sharing their love and knowledge of fishing.”
As well as receiving a goody bag with £2,000 worth of fishing prizes, the overall winner will also get to work with the Angling Times team and see their review of the show uploaded onto the magazine’s web site.
How to Enter
Entrants should email a description of the ways in which they promote angling and how they encourage others to take part to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a picture of themselves. Entries should be received by 2 July 2010.
A ‘Money Can’t Buy’ Prize
Five finalists will receive tickets to the show and the overall winner will receive angling equipment and have the chance to submit a report of their experience of the show to be uploaded onto the Angling Times web site.
A summary of some of the best entries, including our five finalists, will be uploaded on a deciated blog: http://anglingambassador.blogspot.com/ and entries will also be promoted via the dedicated Twitter and Facebook profiles that have been set up specifically for this year’s Go Fishing Show.
The Go Fishing Show takes place at Cudmore Fisheries, Newcastle-under-Lyme on 17 and 18 July. Offering an array of exciting features, the show promises to be a real family fun day out. Throughout the weekend the show will be overflowing with fishing activities for novice and die-hard anglers alike.

The Go Fishing Show also looks set to be a record breaker, putting on the biggest coaching session ever staged around the complex’s ten fish-filled lakes.
Making this weekend extra special for the family, there is an interactive outdoors fun fair for youngsters to enjoy and what’s even better is that on Sunday 18th July, children aged 15 and under get in completely free!
