New 2022

You may not know but since 2011, Angling Spirit has in the background been conducting environmental clean-up operations and helping many children to overcome difficult situations by organising angling educational initiatives & events.

To promote all these projects we will be launching really soon a new website Spirit OF Angling where all Friends OF, School OF Minnows, and Best OF Practise initiatives will be showcased.

So in line with other events run by Angling Spirit, we are now introducing as part of World Predator Classic registration requirements that a clean-up operation is being conducted by all participants.
How it works:
Clean-up registration can be done any time from registration time up to 2 weeks prior to the start of on-site registration.
Preferably around water be it a river/lake or the sea but anywhere is good as long as you can make a difference to a site which is dear to you.
Always better if you can have friends and family joining you and make a great day out of it.
Take a minimum of 5 pictures and post them on your social media accounts making sure the post is set to public access for all to see.
Email us the link to your Facebook and or Instagram post so we can see it and validate your entry

Conditions of Entry

• To complete a cleanup operation
• All participants must hold a valid Dutch fishing license. If you do not already hold one, you will be added to the competition permit list which is only valid during daily competition hours.
• Anyone intending to operate a boat during the competition must present at registration a valid international certificate for operating of pleasure craft or equivalent. (https://unece.org/fileadmin/DAM/trans/doc/finaldocs/sc3/TRANS-SC3-147e.pdf).
• A boat public liability certificate is required to cover any third-party damage in the event of any incident and is also to be presented at registration.
• Limited personal public liability is included in the entry fee – read carefully the WPC personal public liability details. Due to the limitations, anglers are required to have their own personal public liability in addition.
