WANT to be an angling journalist or angling blogger? You could win an exciting expenses-paid multi-media role with the makers of the forthcoming Pursuit series, coming to Freeview’s Quest TV channel.


If being a blogger and more is something that flicks your switch, the producers of TV’s Crabtree and Pursuit shows have a fantastic competition for you. Read on – and enter ASAP!

This competition is for Angler’s Mail fans and viewers of the TV shows on Freeview’s Quest channel.

One person – maybe YOU – will become the official ‘on location’ reporter/blogger with your name in lights and chance to be angling’s next big journalist. This is a unique chance.

We want to see (or hear – you don’t have to appear on screen and you could talk over a piece) how well you can present your report, blog or story. Keep it concise and interesting.

What the winner will win…

Our winner will attend a film shoot for the exciting new series of Pursuit and be the Angler’s Mail online correspondent on location.

The winner will get to interview John Bailey – one of the finest angling writers. Plus you’ll talk to co-presenters, guests and the crew.

You could be the one taking the official photos that will appear across social media platforms, TV sites and AM itself. And you’d be the official blogger to do a weekly preview of each of the episodes online.

You could be the one winning some of the new tackle from the Pursuit range which you can review.

Plus you will receive a limited edition, one-off box-set of the Crabtree and Pursuit DVDs signed by John, the angling guests and the crew.

All of your expenses, subsistence, accommodation and travel will be paid and as a part of the production staff you will eat, hang out and stay with the crew and be a full part of the team.

On location you will be accompanied by highly experienced production crew who will share their expertise.


YOU need to upload a short piece on YouTube providing your report. It can be about an angling experience of your own, a review of tackle, a venue or an article/news story you have read.

Then we want you to upload a short report onto YouTube of no more than two minutes.

When you have done that tweet your video’s URL with the #Pursuitreporter

The Angler’s Mail and Pursuit team will view the various entries and come up with a short list of six.

Because it’s viral we want to hear the views of our readers and the TV audience to help us in this search. Lobby us, get your friends and families to support your entry.

We will announce the winner in Angler’s Mail print magazine early in April.

The closing date for entries is midnight, April 4, 2017. SO DO NOT DELAY!
