The Wessex Specimen Group
The wessex specimen group was formed in November 2003
by Jay Bowditch and Paul Thomas who have spent many years fishing in the wessex
region. It was felt that there was a shortfall in clubs who cater for specimen
anglers and match anglers and so have now introduced a club with there own
specimen award scheme and twelve shore fixtures a year. Although the WSG is
based in Southampton the group welcomes members from the whole Wessex region and
keeps in touch with its members via the web and newsletter sent every other
The WSG has a revised specimen award scheme with its
own sizes for every UK region including the channel islands. Each claim must be
produced with at least one witness of capture and a photograph before a
certificate will be issued and entered into our specimen league. Any claims
above NFSA specimen sizes will automatically entered into that scheme.
Our shore competitions are held on venues from the
westerly fringes of West Sussex through to the steep shelving beaches of
Dorset`s Chesil beach. The wide variety of venues allows a very mixed approach
to members technique. From flounders, eels and mullet in the Solent's estuary's
to whiting, rays and codling on the open beaches makes our league a great
challenge to even the most experienced anglers. Competitions are fished on a six
hour basis and entrance fees are £7 plus £1 optional pool. We permit the use
of one rod and three hooks fishing to NFSA minimum size limits.
You can become a valued member of the WSG for the
annual fee of £10 payable in January or join for a part year at a reduced rate.
Whilst not essential, it is preferred that prospective members are already
attached to the NFSA through individual or personal membership.
