Match ace up for £130K double

Up and coming match ace Andy Geldart will be fishing for up to £130,000 this summer after he became the first man ever to seal a place in both the Fish O’Mania and Maver Match This finals in the same season.

The Garbolino and Bag’em Matchbaits rod beat off competition at The Oaks in North Yorkshire to book his place in the £30,000 Fish O’Mania final last month and has now earned a shot at up to £100,000 in the Maver Match This showcase by winning the latest heat at Woodlands Lakes.

“To win one would be amazing, but to get victory in them both would be beyond my wildest dreams and I’d definitely be in the market for a new house if it happened,” explained an elated Andy.
