Roll up, roll up - for the Fenland Flyer

Pike fly fishing fans are set to gather in the depths of the Fens for the fourth Fenland Flyer.

The charity match, with all proceeds going to the Anthony Nolan bone marrow charity, is being staged again on the Delph at Welney, on the Norfolk/Cambs border, on Sunday, November 5.

The draw takes place at the Lamb & Flag pub in the village, under the glassy gaze of the famed Colonel's Pike, a cased 39lbs fish which gazes down on the bar of one of the best-known pikers' pubs in the Fens.

Once the bacon rolls are out of the way, competitors line up for the walk-off as the event begins in earnest.

To reserve your place, just send a cheque for £15 payable to the Anthony Nolan Trust to the PFFA, c/o 28 Crown Ave, Holbeach St Marks, Spalding, Lincs PE12 8EU.

Sponsors put a lot of kit into supporting the event and this year's is no different.
