This match is 'flatfish only (sole)' the rules for which can be viewed here. As with the corresponding match last year, faced with few fish or 'gruelling conditions' the Club may make some 'running repairs' to the rules on match day so that the prize money can be paid out. If no soles are caught, then other fish - regardless of size - will count under a modified 'measure and return' system … but please check with the organisers on the day.
