Take part in Matt Hayes' Summer Challenge and win a day fishing with Matt

Here's your chance to win a day's fishing with the one and only Matt Hayes.

Improve Your Coarse Fishing are hosting a great new competition where you could win a fabulous day out with the one and only Matt Hayes.

It's such a simple competition to enter - all you need to do is catch a fish - any fish of any size - take a photo of it and let Matt see it. You will also need to tell Matt why you think your catch was so special. You don't need to write a book about your catch - 100 words will do just nicely.



You have three different ways of entering the Matt Hayes Summer Challenge – each entry method has an equal chance of winning. Here’s how you do it:

Option 1: BY POST
Post a picture of your fish, and details of why it is special, to: Matt Hayes Summer Challenge, IYCF, Bushfield House, Orton Centre, Peterborough. PE2 5UW.

Option 2: BY EMAIL
Send us an email containing a picture of your fish, plus your name and address, to iycf@bauermedia.co.uk. Please mark the subject box Matt Hayes Challenge and tell us – in no more than 100 words – why the catch deserves to win a place in the final.

Finally, and most immediately, you can place your entry direct on to the Matt Hayes Summer Challenge forum we’ve set up HERE. It’s quick, easy and allows you to ensure your entry hits the gallery today!



Every entry will be put in a massive landing net. On the closing date - September 15 - IYCF editor Kevin Green will draw one name out of the net. That person will win the Golden Ticket and a day with the man himself - Matt Hayes.

But each month there will be separate prizes awarded for five very lucky anglers, detailed below...



All that's left is to say good luck.... enjoy your fishing, remember to take your camera, get a few snaps and send it in to us using one of the three options above.
