Dovetail Games Euro Fishing was proud to sponsor this year’s Young British Carp Anglers Championships (BYCAC) which was held on Oxlease Lake on the Linear Fishery Complex.
The decision to sponsor this event is part of our ongoing commitment to support the angling industry, particularly the youth side that are just starting out in their fishing journeys! Attending the final of the BYCAC was a fantastic occasion and whilst it was no doubt a serious competition, it was great to see how friendly the atmosphere was between the anglers competing and their friends and family who were there supporting them. After being so impressed, we made the decision to sponsor three anglers and would love to introduce them to you!
First up is Liam Morgan who at 17 is the oldest of the three anglers. Liam was taking part in the BYCAC for the final time and managed to finish 2nd overall for the 2nd time in a row and this was his 3rd time on the podium! Clearly, he is a very talented angler who has a very bright future ahead of him! Liam is sponsored by Korda and Dynamite Baits with a personal best fish of 42lb 12oz (mirror carp) which was incidentally caught during last year’s final! His favourite venue is the Linear complex and his favourite method is fishing over particles. Liam will be keeping us informed of his angling over the next 12 months but more details of his BYCAC adventure can be found here http://www.korda.co.uk/carpfishingnews/liam-morgan-gets-on-the-bycac-podium-for-the-third-time.
Our second sponsored angler is , who is so natural in front of a camera he is like a seasoned pro. Fin is only 14 but already has a string of impressive fish to his name and we were taken aback by his passion and enthusiasm for the sport, particularly coming from Cumbria, which means long drives around the country for his supportive dad, Phil! Fin is currently sponsored by Taska with a personal best fish of 26lb 2oz (mirror carp) with his favourite venue being Oxlease Lake at Linear. His favourite method of fishing is an out and out boilie approach. Fin has a fantastic YouTube channel and we will be sharing his exploits with you over the year but head to https://www.youtube.com/user/70DDY1970 and make sure you subscribe to get all his latest videos straight away!
Last but by no means least is 15-year-old Tyler Lane. Despite struggling in the final of the BYCAC with such tough conditions and an unfavourable peg draw, we were really impressed with Tyler’s never say die attitude, trying everything he could but always with a smile on his face – exactly how carp fishing should be! Again, another talented angler who lives and breathes his carp fishing and has recently secured a winter ticket on the famous Wraysbury complex which has quickly become his favourite venue. Tyler is currently sponsored by Freespirit, Hobo Armour and Kraken Tackle and his personal best is a 32lb 10oz common carp. Tyler also likes to fish an out and out boilie approach. Tyler also has a brilliant YouTube channel and will also be sharing his exploits with you over the next 12 months but in the meantime, go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxf1I_Y-9zeNND8AeqO5RSA and make sure you subscribe to Tyler as well!
We recently had all three anglers to our studio where they were given a tour and got to see what goes into making simulation games. Paul Jackson, Dovetail Games’ Chief Executive Officer was on hand to meet the anglers and introduce them to Dovetail before saying ‘It was a pleasure to meet these young lads, they are clearly passionate anglers and already excellent ambassadors for their sport. I’m delighted that we are able to help them this year and can’t wait to see what the next 12 months brings in their fishing.’
