The championship will take place at the
Noordhollandsch Kanaal. The canal has a total length of 80
km through the province of Noord-Holland. Its many
connections with other waterways makes this canal very
attractive for fishing, especially coarse fishing. The fish
can reach this canal from many waterways.
The competition will be held on a course that
is situated between the Neckermill in Wijdewormer and
Spijkerboor. The course we will be using boasts a total
length of 7,5 kilometres.
The road alongside this part of the canal
is called the Kanaaldijk at Wijdewormer respectively
Kanaaldijk at Spijkerboor. (See the locality map below)
The course is entirely accessible by car.
You can park your car directly behind your fishing spot.
In most places, the berm is planted with
reeds on either side of the canal. Needless to say, that is
the place where the fish likes being most of all. Therefore,
fishing with the feeder rod is a very good possibility.
However the canal is also very well known for the good
fishing with the long pole.
The width of the canal varies between 40
and 50 meters. The depth varies from 1,5 meters on the banks
till approximately 4,5 meters in the middle of the canal. At
11 meters in it is about 3 meters deep.
The water has a light flow and will
stream only a little faster after heavy rains. Heavy feeders
or floats are not necessary.
The species we expect to be seeing are Roach,
Rudd, Ide, Perch, Ruffe, White Bream, Tench and Bream
ranging from 1 to 2 kilos. There is also the possibility to
hook a Carp.
