Frank Barlow Memorial open match to take place on River Trent

One of Nottingham’s most famous fishing sons will once again be honoured early next month with the Frank Barlow Memorial fishing match in memory of the larger than life former Shakespeare Superteam river king.

The fishing match takes place on Wednesday September 1 on the River Trent at Long Higgin, one of Frank’s favourite stretches, the draw taking place at 9am with fishing from 12 noon until 5pm.

All the monies raised from the pegging and post-match raffle will go to the Nottingham City Hospital Cancer Ward where Frank was treated with more information and tickets available from Tim at Matchman Supplies on 01159 813834.
