The Angling Trust is excited to release the new dates for Fish’O’Mania qualifiers in 2018. This year the £50,000 competition sees a real focus on the anglers; with popular venues offered further qualifiers and where appropriate the number of pegs at qualifiers reduced, making more space for better matches.
In conjunction with Matchroom Sport the decision to update the final venue to Hayfield Lakes has been undertaken. Hayfield will offer an exciting and competitive final with Island Lake offering both a multitude of tactical options and good head of bonus fish.
