Marie Curie Predator Cup

The Cambridge Region of the Pike Anglers Club will again be helping out with the running of the Marie Curie Predator Cup, which is being staged on the Ely Ouse on Sunday, November 26, for the sixth year running.

Since it was first fished, in 2000, the event has raised more than £10,000 for the work of the cancer charity, which provides nurses and palliative care to those suffering the disease.

Once again the Ouse between Queen Adelaide, on the outskirts of Ely, and Littleport, will be the venue. Both pike and zander are present in this stretch of the river and both will count in the match.

The draw will be at the Ely Beet Sports and Social Club, in Ely, from 7.30am onwards.

Fishing will be from 9am until 3pm and only deadbaits and lures may be used.

Two rods only to be fished at any time.

The cost will be £15.00 per person, plus an optional pool.

Tickets can be obtained from

Event organiser Dick Culpin said: "I look forward to seeing familiar and new faces alike on what I am sure will be an enjoyable and very worthwhile day."
