Holt SAC Specimen Competition (NEW)


Holt Sea Angling Club has created a new Specimen Competition for its Members who will be participating in this competition whenever and wherever they fish on-Shore in UK Waters. This competition will be deemed a Club activity which means that all participants will be covered by the Club’s Insurance and therefore its Members will be covered for all their personal shore fishing activity in UK Waters. This Competition is only for Shore caught fish in UK Waters and therefore the Club’s Insurance will not cover personal Boat fishing.
