This year we are limiting the number of tickets to only 250, which will greatly increase your chance of winning. The tickets will cost £20 each with all proceeds going to the MNDA – There are plenty of prizes but the 1st prize is a very unique Linear Gold Ticket that will allow free fishing on all the Linear Day Ticket Waters except Hunts Corner for a year. You can purchase your ticket through Just Giving via the following link http://www.justgiving.com/Anita-Solan1/… (DONT FORGET TO LEAVE YOUR NAME & EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN PURCHASING A TCIKET)

Please see below for further details:
*THREE MAJOR PRIZES TO BE DRAWN IN ORDER SHOWN*
1st LINEAR GOLD TICKET:
A full years fishing for one on any of Linear’s popular day ticket waters at Oxford. This is a unique prize – as there are no annual permits available to the public. Does not include Hunts Corner Lake.
2nd FISHING FOR TWO IN FRANCE – INCLUDES SONUBAITS BAIT PACKAGE & FERRY CROSSING:
The Graviers Long Lake: Situated in the Dijon Valley. This lovely five acre lake is controlled by Luke Moffatt who operates the famous Graviers Fishery [home of a world record carp] The smaller Long Lake is now virtually un-fished but the fish are fed regularly by Luke who on rare occasions allows friends to fish there. It is around 50 meters distance from the famous Graviers Main Lake, allowing the winners of this prize to be shown around the larger water and speak to Luke, who has been running the two waters for over 14 years. …and who knows…the winners may even get to witness the capture of a new world record during the week!!
Heavily stocked, the smaller long lake is estimated to hold around 500 to 700 carp, up to 50 pounds. When the lake was open for fishing, it would regularly produce over 100 fish a week to 2 anglers, if baited correctly.
This prize is the fishing for two people on the Long Lake and a ticket for the ferry crossing for both them and one car. For the trip SonuBaits will provide 60 kilos (sixty) of their Code Red Boilies

PRESS RELEASE

Linear Fisheries (Oxford) Ltd announce the retirement of their Head Bailiff, Roy Parsons, who after twenty years loyal service with the company has decided to retire at the end of April this year.
Roy a familiar figure at the fishery since 1995 has helped the fishery grow from its humble beginning with just four lakes to the very popular eleven lake carp fishery it is today.
Roy will be replaced by Ian Roper who has been a volunteer bailiff and in the last two years has been on the Linear team as a part time bailiff. In other ways Ian has been associated with the fishery for more than ten years.
Ian, who is a very knowledgeable all round angler, will take up his new post as Head Bailiff on April 20th.
Linear believe that Ian, with his angling knowledge and his past experience at the fishery, will make a very good leader of the Bailiff team. Ian will report to Chris Blunt, who has just been promoted to General Manager.

Chris, who has held the position of Fishery Officer for the last ten years, took up his new role on April 1st and is now in charge of all day to day fishery matters at the lakes.

Len Gurd, Director of Linear Fisheries Oxford, said. “Roy has been with us as a bailiff since 1986, first as a volunteer bailiff at the old Linear Fisheries Linford site and then joining us in 1995 at Oxford as a full time Head Bailiff. He has been a mainstay at Oxford and someone that we and the fishery could always trust and rely on. I know that after all these years working together, he will certainly be missed, not just by us but by all those that have got to know him over the years. He is one of angling’s characters, a legend in the world of carp angling – the like of which we may never see again.
We thought long and hard about a replacement for Roy and many names were considered. Although it is unlikely that there will ever be another like Roy, we believe that Ian Roper will bring something new and worthwhile to the fishery, both Chris Blunt and I look forward to having him work for us.
We wish both of them the very best – Roy in his retirement and Ian in his new role as Head Bailiff-and welcome Chris Blunt in his new role as General Manager, knowing that Chris will continue to do the excellent work that he’s done to date and add much, much more to keep the fishery at the top where it belongs”.

Linear Fisheries (Oxford) Ltd was founded in 1993 as a Joint Venture Company between family owned, Oxfordshire aggregates company Smith & Sons (Bletchington) Ltd and Len Gurd, Angling Professional.
