The first ever Pembrokeshire Bass Lure Tournament is in June - sign up by the end of this month, this event looks like it’s going to be a cracker

If you are into your bass lure fishing and you enjoy fishing new waters in a stunning part of the world together with a bunch of like-minded junkies, then you need to put the 28th, 29th, and 30th of June 2019 in your diary and get up to Wales. I take my hat off to anglers who organise events like these, and it looks like there are going to be a heap of amazing prizes. I have copied and pasted the relevant details below from the “Pembrokeshire Bass Lure Tournament” page on Facebook - all you need to know about how to enter and so on are in there…………
