OVER­SEAS QUAL­I­FIERS

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

FOUR qual­i­fiers are set to be staged over­seas, with dis­cus­sions cur­rently on­go­ing to de­cide the venues. Here are four coun­tries in the run­ning...

HOL­LAND – Dutch TV has aired the fi­nal for sev­eral years so there is def­i­nitely a grow­ing ap­petite for the event in the coun­try. Add to that sev­eral suit­able venues full of big bream and Hol­land is def­i­nitely a can­di­date.

IRE­LAND – The high in­ter­est in top-level match an­gling, along with the var­ied an­gling op­por­tu­ni­ties, will mean that Ire­land is cer­tainly in the thoughts of the or­gan­is­ers.

FRANCE – The coun­try has tens of thou­sands of keen coarse an­glers and the great trans­port links with Eng­land will pro­vide an­glers here with a fairly easy op­por­tu­nity to com­pete in Fish O’Ma­nia abroad.

SWE­DEN – Prob­a­bly not the most ob­vi­ous can­di­date, but the sil­ver­fish sport in the coun­try is phe­nom­e­nal and there’d def­i­nitely be in­ter­est in hold­ing a heat here.
