The Big Lerf Fundraiser 2022 will take place in Plymouth, Devon on Saturday 16th July at 9am. This event will build on the incredible turnout for the 2021 event in Weymouth and hopefully raise lots of money for our two chosen charities. As before this will be a lure only event, with a variety of categories and prizes from the finest tackle companies and shops. You can buy your ticket below:

All proceeds will be split between the RNLI and the Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme
By buying a ticket to this event you agree:
That the organisers are not responsible for your safety and are not liable for any injury taking place during the event. You must take care to look after the safety of yourself, fellow anglers and the general public.
Not to use live or dead bait to catch any fish that will be entered into the competition.
To not act in any way that would damage the reputation of yourself, The Big Lerf Group and angling in general.
To abide by the rules set out by the organisers given to you on the day of the event.
We will meet at Mount Batten Pier, Turnchapel at 9am to give out the numbered cards. You will also receive the rules. There is ample parking there, regular buses and a ferry to there that leaves from the Barbican. From there you can venture as far as you like, as long as you can return to Mount Batten by 6pm. There we will declare the winners and hand out prizes.
Mount Batten Pier itself is a famous breakwater with fantastic fishing options, you could easily spend the day there fishing but we recommend you make the most of the Plymouth foreshore as it has plenty of marks to choose from. Plymouth Barbican, which you can catch a ferry to or drive if you prefer, has excellent food options and, of course, Osborne & Cragg Tackle Shop.
There will be prizes for following:
Most species overall (Prizes for 1st 2nd and 3rd place)
Most species on hard lures and metals
Most species by a junior angler (17 and under)
Coolest catch / rarest species
Most goby and blenny species
We have an incredible roster of sponsors that will be providing the prizes. These include:
Osborne And Cragg Tackle Shop
Art Of Fishing Tackle Shop
Not Guilty Press
C.A.N. Fishing Lures
A huge thank you to these generous companies and the people behind them, we are so proud to have their support for this event.
Although thus is a fantastic excuse for a get together, the charities themselves are the reason we are doing this. This event will raise money for two superb causes, one huge and one just starting up.
RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) – I don’t think I need to explain what the RNLI does. We all know how quickly things can change on the rocks and this charity absolutely deserves our support. The exceptional work these fine people do is something we can all appreciate.
ANLRS (Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme) – We all use line that will eventually end up in landfill. This fantastic scheme is leading the way in the UK for recycling line and finding new uses for our discarded tackle. As we move forward into a more environmentally friendly future, it is projects like these that are going to help change the public’s view of fishing in a positive way.
There will be more information posted closer to the time. In the mean time please join The Big Lerf Group on Facebook or follow us on Instagram. You can also read my write up of last year’s event here.
