Bait-Tech is TEN years old! As part of the celebrations, the international bait company has organised a unique match between their Carp Team and Match Team of anglers.
The seat-box team will be led by top match man Andy Neal and they’ll be taking on the green bivvy boys led by their main man Ian Hirst. Rods at the ready, this grudge match of the year will be held at Barston Lakes on 29th September 2017.
The company’s MD, Hayley Goldsmith, wanted to celebrate the 10 year anniversary with something a little different. “We’re very proud of what we have achieved and the range of products we have developed over the years. To reach this exciting milestone is something to celebrate” she explains, “the banter between these two styles of fishing is legendary and to have this opportunity to pitch them against each other is a perfect way to mark this anniversary.”
Not only is there a trophy at stake for the winning team but as Match Team Captain Andy Neal says “To be the first team to get our name on the trophy would be great. I’ve heard that Ian Hirst has already been shouting off and getting ahead of himself – I’m confident my team will do the business on the day and we‘ll look forward to sending the carp boys home with their tails between their legs. This ‘head to head’ is going to show everyone that match anglers are superior when it comes to the crunch!”
Carp Team Captain Ian Hirst told us ‘Getting our names on the trophy is the only goal, we want to kick the match teams backsides and show them we are equally adept at competitive angling as we are at big carp fishing. I believe Andy Neal is willing to eat his words – this day is about proving the Carp Team are Top Dogs.”
