One of the biggest canal winter leagues in the country, the Pro Natural Teams Of Three, begins this Sunday, December the 14th on the Stainforth & Keadby Canal at Thorne.
The event attracted over 70 anglers to most of its rounds last year, and this year gained sponsorship from Bait-Tech, who are sponsoring Pro-Natural groundbait prizes which will be handed out to second place in every five-peg section.
With well-attended matches and double-figure nets of silver fish common-place, the sought-after series is being run by Lee Kerry, Tom Scholey and Matt Godfrey.
Last year was a great success with roach weights up to 20lb, on a variety of different baits. This year has seen roach weights across the Yorkshire Canal system sky rocket so everyone is fully expecting another bumper year on the canal.
Entry is once again £150, per team of three, with £20 pools per match. Overall team positions will be determined on cumulative weight.
Tom Scholey commented: “Paying £50 every five-peg section was popular last year, and apart from the peg fees, all the money gets paid back out to the anglers, making for a competitive winter series with great prizes.”
It is also worth noting that you can fish all these matches as opens. If you could book on prior to the match via text or phone call (numbers below) to let the organizers know that you are coming.

The draw will take place at the Canal Tavern pub in Thorne at 8am. Breakfasts will be available.
