Guru announce White Acres festival sponsorship

Guru are delighted to announce the headline sponsorship of the annual mid-April White Acres festival, which will now be known as the Guru Festival.

Attracting nearly 200 of the finest UK match anglers to Cornwall, the multi-day festivals have become an institution, offering amazing sport on a variety of lakes and top quality accommodation along with substantial prize pots.

Guru brand manager, Adam Rooney, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled that Guru will be sponsoring one of the biggest and most prestigious festivals in the country, at the premier match and holiday venue in the UK.

“I look forward to going down in April next year and fishing against the top match anglers at one of my favourite venues, for the inaugural Guru Festival,” added Adam.

Clint Elliott, fishery manager at White Acres, said: “I’m absolutely delighted that Guru are involved. I’ve got a great relationship with Adam Rooney and Steve Ringer and it’s great to be involved with an up-and-coming company that put a lot of time and effort into the match fishing scene.

“I think it’ll be a great partnership – I couldn’t think of a better company to work with,” added Clint, who recently celebrated his 16th year in charge of the fishery side at White Acres.

Incidentally, one particular Guru angler has dominated the recent White Acres festivals. Reading-based Paul Holland tackled three consecutive events at the Cornish venue this spring, and amazingly won the first two events and came a creditable fifth in his third, only narrowly missing out on a unique triple.

The multi-lake complex hosts several festival-style events throughout the year, mainly concentrated during summer and spring, but also operates as a holiday venue where you can book accommodation a stone’s throw from the 13 well-stocked lakes and 300 pegs over 184 acres of amazing Cornish countryside. Species include carp, tench, rudd, roach, bream and catfish.
