‘New’ Fish O’ gets my vote

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

SO THE promised re-vamp of Fish O’Ma­nia has ar­rived. It re­mains the cheap­est way to win £50k, and the only live fi­nal on TV.

I know Match­room has been con­sid­er­ing qual­i­fiers out­side the UK, and with Dutch TV hav­ing taken the event for the last three years, in­ter­est there is ab­so­lutely huge – but whether the matches will sell out, only time will tell.

With 28 fi­nal places avail­able, get­ting there will be eas­ier but win­ning it will be harder.

I reckon the An­gling Trust and Match­room have given match an­glers what they want – more qual­i­fy­ing places, more pegs in the fi­nal and more chances to get there. That doesn’t mean they will be happy, be­cause the de­fault po­si­tion of many match an­glers is to moan.

This year’s Fish O’ win­ner Andy May.
