Join Will Raison at his Match Tactics Academy days

Following on from the success of the Spring Match Tactics Academy Day, V2V Angling Productions are pleased to announce the second and third of Will Raison's Match Tactics Academies on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th October 2010 at the prolific Gold Valley Lakes complex near Aldershot in Hampshire.

The Academy Days focus on tactics for match success in Autumn relative to the prevailing conditions at the time featuring a demonstration from the former World & Individual Champion followed by a tuition session. The tuition session takes place in the form of a friendly ‘no pools money’ match practice during which Will is on hand to advise and assist all the angler’s to improve their angling skills and knowledge. All standards of angler can be catered for as long as they provide their own tackle, bait is provided.

There will be a goody bag for all the angler’s plus trophies for the best three weights at the end of the practice match.

"The first session was a great success with all the angler’s really getting stuck in and it was great to see that some of them caught a few personal bests and others enjoyed success on methods they had not experienced before," said Will.

"I really get a buzz from these days and it’s a chance to give practical first hand advice and help to the participants," added Will.

These days are really an extension of the information Will imparts in his series of Champion’s Angle instructional DVD titles and his monthly Emagazine ‘Will Raison’s A World Champion’s Angle.
