Shoreline cleanup information

In line with all other Angling Spirit competitions, we now ask as a condition of entry that a shoreline cleanup is undertaken by all participants as we believe we all have a duty to play to make a difference for the planet and future generations.

As this initiative is in its introduction year for the Street Fishing event, participating is done on a voluntary basis.
We trust though that you will adhere to the ethos of leaving a cleaner planet for future generations and will take part in one if not more of the following options. Feel free to also chose more than one for giving you the best chance to win a prize and/or become a patron and sponsor a child to plant seagrass in your name.

OPTION 1 The Social Media route – the best post will be awarded a Lowrance castable Fishhunter.

Any shore is good: lake, river, pond (if no water is available then any clean-up counts).

The more the merrier. Take friends and family along and make it an excellent time together. Remember to get approval from those that you are doing the clean-up with as you need to post pictures on Social Media.

To validate your clean up you will be asked to post 5 pictures as follow:
On any of the following social media platforms Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn.

This MUST be completed by the 29th of May to be eligible for the prize.

A unique post per person is required – see options on how to post below

It is always nice if you could add Spirit OF Angling and Friends OF Metz logos along with the following hashtags #23WSFFriendsOFMetz #23WSFWorldStreeFishing – this will also help us verify your posts. Links to logos for downloads are available on the form

How to deal with Private or lack of social media account
If  your account is set up to Private on Facebook you can update your  settings so that they are public

Failing that you can ask a friend, family member or a company to host it for you. They will be pleased to do so as it will create good positive engagement.

The same social media account can hold up to four posts for as long as the name of one person is mentioned on the post and that person is visible on at least one of the pictures.

Shoreline Cleanup Form

To show you have completed the Social Media Shoreline Cleanup and are eligible for the Lowrance prize, this logo will appear by your name with a link to your post

OPTION 2 – On the day while you compete on Sunday the 4th of June – the best collection will be rewarded with a guided day’s fishing with Andreas

Collect, and hand it in with your scorecard on Sunday the 4th of June.
The winner will be invited to collect his prize on stage.

If you already have done it on Social Media, no problem join in again for a second chance to win a great prize.

OPTION 3 – Become a patron of an Angling Spirit Seagrass operation

Because seagrass captures carbon up to 35 times faster than tropical rainforests and that one square meter only produces 10 liters of oxygen every day, it is the best-suited project to offset any carbon footprint from anglers taking part in an Angling Spirit event.
A simple donation of €20 at on-site registration will ensure your name is being associated with social media posts and website listing for the operation you are a patron of.
Operations will be conducted by young children from disadvantaged backgrounds and people experiencing mental health issues.
You will be able to follow the story online and see your name associated with the operation you are linked to.


If you become a patron this is the picture that will be associated with your name on our Official list.
Your name will also appear on a dedicated page on our Spirit Of Angling website for the operation you are a patron of.
