Half of the boats booked for the PAC's biggest-ever fish-in have already been taken up, events organiser Mark Skinner said tonight.
The club has 50 boats reserved for a charity pike fishing bash at Rutland Water, on Monday, September 24.
Proceeds from the day will be going to the CLIC Sargent children's cancer charity.
Mark said 25 boats had now gone in a flood of applications following the recent Pikelines.
Places for the event are for PAC members only and will be allotted on a strictly first-come, first-served basis.
The PAC has secured access to the reservoir two weeks before it opens for pike fishing. See Pikelines for an application form and more details on the event.
