Claim your place in the history books

Work is now well in progress on a project code-named PAC30 - a book to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Pike Anglers Club.

The limited-edition book will go on sale at this year's Convention, which officially marks the club's 30th birthday.

As well as looking back at some of the major events in pike fishing since the club was formed, it will also feature contributions from around 30 of today's leading pike anglers.

Some of them are household names. Some of them less famous, but no less-successful in their own areas or at their chosen methods.

While the exact line-up is a work in progress as far as the book is concerned, we have created two special slots for chapters from PAC members.

Any member of the club can enter a piece of writing to be considered for inclusion, but please bear in mind the conditions:

Entries, which should be in the region of 2,500 words, can be on any aspect off pike fishing. It needs to illustrated with a selection of pictures which are of suitable quality for reproduction purposes.

The closing date for entries is March 30 but a brief synopsis should be sent in by February 28 so the team putting the book together have some idea what entries are on the way.

This should include your contact details so we can contact you in the event of any queries.

Entries should be sent to PAC secretary Mark Barrett via the e-mail address in the contacts section of the main PAC website.
