Ten Mile Bank latest venue for angling’s ‘Building Bridges’
They call it 'Building Bridges' and the name of the game's just that when it comes to fostering better relations between anglers from different cultures.
Ten Mile Bank will be the latest venue to host a meet-up and lure match on Saturday March 3, with the registration at the Jenyn's Arms car park, Denver Sluice from 7.30am, followed by fishing from 9am-2pm.
Tickets are �13, with prizes for the to three bags of fish and biggest specimen caught.
It's lure only (deads allowed if wobbled...) from the bank, with anglers fishing in pairs to verify each other's catches.
All must come equipped with landing nets and unhooking mats, with all fish to be returned.

Fishing will be followed by a prize giving and sausage barbecue. More information from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talking of the Ouse, I thought one or two places might have been clear by Sunday, after a drive around revealed everywhere else was frozen bank-to-bank. But it was the same story on the big river – apart from a couple of areas where just a narrow channel was free down the middle.

If you can get out this week, you might just find the fish feeding as the thaw sets in. Then again with all that snow melt and salt finding its way in as the ice departs, it might take a few more days before things return to whatever passes for normal these days.
The clock's now ticking, with less than a month to go until the end of the season on the rivers and drains.
