Strike while the iron is still hot and send us your account of an outstanding or unusual day’s fishing…or maybe a piece of fiction…or a gripe…it could be anything with a piscatorial slant that FM viewers might find interesting. Between us we have a thousand + years of fishing experience so there simply has to be a wealth of untold tales out there. Humour is particularly welcome – everyone likes a laugh. What happened the time you took a girlfriend fishing? (yes, yes…or a boyfriend) How did you deal with a stroppy canoist / bull / land owner / angler? Why do you think the angling scene is better or worse than it was? There’s no end to the possibilities! Send in your article of 1,000 words or more and any supporting photography on an e mail with attachments to:

There are 3 prizes to choose from: a Wychwood carp rod and reel combo; an absolutely superb box FULL of Rapala lures; a night’s accommodation and a full day’s guided barbel fishing on the river Wye with former guide, Graham Elliott. The winner takes his or her pick leaving the runner-up with a choice of two.

Don’t go fishing today, you won’t catch anything anyway. Stay in and tap out YOUR entry to the FM Writing Competition.
