Each year, the British Pike Championships raises funds to fight pollution and campaign to protect fisheries. The money raised helps support our in-house legal team, which takes on legal cases against big businesses on behalf of our member angling clubs. All of the compensation reclaimed is usually put straight back into restoring the affected fisheries and safeguarding the future of many waters.

Organising regional qualifier matches is a really good way of raising funds to support our work and at the same time a good way of getting anglers to fish new venues.
