The Angling Trust has added a counter facility to the Riverfest 2013 page on its website which has revealed that some venues have as few as seven tickets remaining. The majority of venues have more than half of their tickets sold – and sales have only been officially open for a matter of days!
The event is the brainchild of former Match Fishing
magazine editor Dave Harrell, who has worked closely with the Angling
Trust to get the competition off the ground. “We are delighted with how
sales are going so far," Dave explained. "The response really has been
fantastic when you consider that just two months ago we hadn’t even
booked a venue and were appealing for organisers to come forward!
must thank the people who have volunteered to organise the different
qualifiers. It is really pleasing just how many people have got behind
it and I am obviously not the only one who is mad keen to create a
flagship event for river anglers!
"Although we can’t give too
much away at present, we are currently in talks with sponsors and can
confirm that the prize fund will be increased, although I can’t say for
definite who the sponsor will be yet as we are still in negotiations.
in all, it’s a very exciting time to be a river angler. If any anglers
out there are wanting to fish any of the qualifiers, I would advise them
to get in quick, as this time next week a lot of the venues will
probably be sold out!”
