‘New’ Fish O’ gets my vote
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.
