Na­tional An­gling Awards

Na­tional An­gling Awards poll still open

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

Time to vote!

THOU­SANDS of an­glers have al­ready taken to the in­ter­net to vote for their favourites in this year’s Na­tional An­gling Awards.

Polling for the pres­ti­gious com­pe­ti­tion went live on the An­gling Times web­site a week ago and al­ready floods of votes have been re­ceived – with the River of the Year, Achieve­ment of 2017 and Catch of the Year cat­e­gories es­pe­cially pop­u­lar.

Poles, reels and rods from some of the most in­no­va­tive tackle com­pa­nies in the busi­ness have also been in the lime­light and sub­ject to lots of at­ten­tion from the an­gling pub­lic. Brown­ing’s 2017 Sphere Zero-G F1 Plus 16m pole has re­ceived hun­dreds of votes in the ‘Pole over £1,000’ cat­e­gory, while the Dren­nan Acolyte Dis­tance Feeder 13ft is a front-run­ner in the ‘Best Feeder Rod’ cat­e­gory. As far as venues go, Nor­folk’s Homers­field Lake, with its pop­u­la­tion of spec­i­men roach, has proved pop­u­lar in the ‘Still­wa­ter of the Year’ cat­e­gory and the Trent seems to be a safe bet to take the ac­co­lade of ‘River of the Year’. An­gling Times Edi­tor-in-Chief, Steve Fitz­patrick, said: “It’s fan­tas­tic to see that our read­ers are pas­sion­ate about their sport and tak­ing to the in­ter­net to vote for who and what they want to win in each cat­e­gory. “The quick re­sponse fur­ther proves how good 2017 has been for fish­ing – not just re­gard­ing catches but for per­sonal achieve­ments, the tackle in­dus­try, an­gling venues and much more. “There’s still plenty of time to have your say and don’t for­get, if you sub­mit your de­tails af­ter the end of the vot­ing process, you could win a fan­tas­tic tackle prize too.”
