At last an­gling is get­ting main­stream TV air time

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

ON BT Sport I’ve just watched Jon Whin­cup win £25k in the Parkdean Mas­ters.

There’s a new for­mat for Fish O’Mania 2017 and a £50,000 prize, and the Maver Match This has just an­nounced its qual­i­fiers for 2017, with £70k pos­si­bly again for the win­ner of that. There’s also the new £50k Golden Reel event. My ques­tion is, has match fish­ing ever been in a bet­ter place?

There is so much big money around these days that fish­ing is be­ing taken se­ri­ously and is get­ting lots of air time on main­stream TV. It’s great to see our sport get­ting to­wards the level of snooker and darts. Well done the or­gan­is­ers, I say. James Simp­son, Mil­ton Keynes
