match fishing

match fishing
competitive coarse fishing in Britian with a peg (fishing spot) selected randomly for each angler, a time limit and rules. Usually the maximum number or weight of fish caught wins the match. Since there are many more small fish than large ones, the effort may be designed to catch large numbers of small fish, often at a rate of a fish every 20 seconds using very fine lines and minute hooks
