ORDINARY anglers have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to fish alongside some the best fisherman in the land in a top charity event this summer.

Linear Fisheries near Oxford are offering just over 30 spots at £300 each for the unique fish-in on Brasenose One and Two over August 15, 16 and 17. They hope to raise well over £10,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Each punter will be drawn with one of the top anglers in the country and will have the opportunity to swap with others to learn even more carp angling skills.

Star names include Lee Jackson, Iain Macmillan (pictured), Ian Russell, Derek Ritchie, Ian Chillcott, Bryan Jarrett and Tim Paisley. There will also be some hush-hush carpers there who have caught some amazing fish who don’t report their catches.
