PAC launches membership offer

The Pike Anglers Club is kicking off its 30th anniversary celebrations with a special extended membership offer for anyone joining for the first time.

The deal, which runs from July 1, means you get 15 months' membership of the PAC instead of the usual 12.

That means you get five copies of the club's acclaimed quaterly magazine Pikelines instead of four and your membership runs until 1st October 2008.

Predator anglers get much more than a quarterly magazine when they join the PAC.

Members' subscriptions help fund the work of the club which has campaigned to preserve the pike and pike fishing for the last 30 years.

The PAC also runs a rapidly-growing calender of events and fish-ins which give all members the chance to enjoy privileged access to some of the best pike waters in the UK. New member Lyn Baker landed a 39lbs 8oz pike on one of our events last season.

The club's network of regional groups run a lively programme of talks, meetings and other social events, while nationally, the club runs an annual convention which is well-established as the UK's biggest predator fishing event.

Membership secretary John Cahill said: "There's never been a better time to join the PAC.

"We have 14 members' events on offer this year, which anyone can apply to fish.

"Pike to 39lbs 8oz were caught during our events last season, as was widely reported in the media.

"We also have the PAC Convention, with an unrivalled list of speakers and all of the top names in predator fishing showing off their latest lures and other tackle.

"Our members' forums are some of the friendliest on the internet, while being a member means your subscription helps support the work of the PAC, which has defended the pike and pike fishing for the last 30 years."

Joining couldn't be easier either. All you have to do is go to our website and you can sign up with Paypal. To find out more, go to

Existing members of the club can also share in the bonus. Any member recruiting a new joiner gets entered in the draw to win a new boat if they use one of the special forms which can be downloaded from the PAC website.

And anyone who's just joined can take advantage and stand a chance of winning the boat too, if they recruit a new member.
