At last angling is getting mainstream TV air time
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
