INDUSTRY NEWS: Cleaning the River Derwent , Saving the Sea…

June 27th, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “INDUSTRY NEWS: Cleaning the River Derwent , Saving the Sea…”

The Paddle Peak team were out again cleaning the River Derwent through Matlock Bath this week. The crew cleared from Artist Corner, down to Cromford and loaded their canoes, kayaks and paddle boards full of trash, comprising of agricultural waste, litter, sanitary waste and an awful lot of metal work which was revealed by the recent low water levels including a shopping trolley from Somerfields, who in fact left Matlock many years ago! Our river guardians cleaned up fly tipped furniture close to Masson Mills that had been dumped down the river bank including a bed and sofa!

The kids and staff from Matlock Bath Preschool and Playgroup also joined the clean up down along the riverside path from Jubilee Bridge to the Derwent Gardens. 

Pete Astles’s, Paddle Peak’s founder commented “ It was really great to be joined by the local kids in Matlock Bath today. It makes all our hard work worthwhile to know the local community support what we’re doing. All the waste we remove from the river protects the environment, it’s wildlife and saves it from making it’s way downstream and ultimately out to sea..“ 

Sarah Stevenson from Matlock Bath Preschool & Playgroup added “We have spent the week with the kids talking about recycling and using bins for our rubbish. The children enjoyed hunting for litter and were very excited to see what the boats and paddle boards had collected from the river and couldn’t believe that a shopping trolley was in there!! “

Many thanks to all the volunteers that came out on the water. Special thanks to Matlock Bath Pre School and Playgroup for joining us. Thanks to Matlock Bath Rowing Boats for taking care of the rubbish and the Derbyshire Dales District Council Green Team for collecting it all. Thanks to Hou Canoes for our amazing fleet of river clean canoes.

Paddle Peak is a community charity who’s goals are to improve access to local outside spaces for all to enjoy. To clean and care for our environment and protect it’s wildlife. To inspire and enable local young people to try and take up paddlesports, giving them the opportunity to experience the outdoors and ultimately care and protect it.

ABOUT THE HOBIE Bass Open Series:
Started in 2019, the Hobie Bass Open Series (HBOS) is a national kayak fishing tournament series with 10 Open Events and 1 Tournament of Champions Event (TOC). Our events take place at some of the best bass fisheries in the country where anglers have the chance to battle it out over the 2-day events which begin Friday night and end Sunday afternoon. Anyone aged 16 years or older may enter the Open Events and all brands of kayaks are welcome. Aside from competing for cash payouts and Angler of the Year points, each event hosts a fun raffle with sponsored prizes and encompasses the camaraderie that makes the kayak fishing community special.

In 2020, despite challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic and new safety protocol measures put in place, we experienced amazing growth. We averaged 108 anglers per event and had as many as 155 anglers participate in a single event. In 2020, angler’s earnings topped over $243,000 and the Tournament of Champions purse paid out $62,000. Our Tournament staff worked harder than ever, and once again in 2021, we couldn’t be more excited to do it again, bigger and better! Our goal is to run the best kayak fishing tournament series in the country, to help anglers in the community, and grow the sport of kayak fishing.

So what’s stopping you from joining in the fun? Come and fish with us on incredible fisheries across the country and compete for big cash payouts, bragging rights and an opportunity to represent your country at the Hobie Fishing Worlds. Kayak fishing continues to grow, and the Hobie Bass Open Series provides an opportunity for the best kayak bass anglers in the country to show what they can do. We hope to see you at a Hobie Bass Open Series event this year!
