The dates for next year’s Fish O Mania qualifiers have been announced and there are a number of surprise changes to the usual line-up.
Anglers across the country have called for new venues to be added to the heats and their voices have been heard, with Gold Valley, Maver Larford Lakes, Barford Lakes and Messingham Sands being added to the list.
Those giving way for the 2012 event are Stafford Moor, Heronbrook Fisheries, Packington Somers and Moorlands Farm.
The first match will be staged at Somerset’s Viaduct Fishery on April 14 with the last qualifier at Lindholme Lakes on June 27.
Applications will be taken for a three week period between January 17 and February 14 and the final list of successful candidates will be released shortly afterwards.
