Nathan Watson named favourite for Fish O Mania final

The odds for this year’s Fish O Mania final are out and there is a shock inclusion at the top of the pile.

With several local anglers such as Andy May qualifying for the £30,000 final, many believed it was a foregone conclusion who would be considered the favourite but the punters have been stunned after bookies Bet365 named Champion of Champions winner Nathan Watson as their favourite.

It is believed Nathan’s experience in such high profile events – this will be his fourth Fish O Mania final – helped him lead the pack.

Just behind are Andy May and Kieron Rich, Tim Nash and Mick Wainwright are in the middle of the field while David George is the biggest outsider.
