It's been a year packed with incredible big fish catches, exceptional tackle innovations and shocking news stories – and now you can vote for your favourites in the 2013 Angling Awards.
Almost 40 different categories have been created to honour the pride of the sport, with ‘angler of the year’, ‘lifetime achievement’ and ‘best river and stillwater’ just a selection of the topics that need your feedback to help us pick the overall winners.
Tackle manufacturers will also be looking on eagerly as they battle it out to take victory in a range of fields including ‘best flagship pole’, ‘top float rod’ and ‘greatest innovation’.
Angling Times editor Steve Fitzpatrick is urging everyone in the sport to get involved with the awards. He said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anglers to vote for who they feel are the big achievers in fishing this year and help their choices gain the recognition they deserve. There have been so many great catches made and tackle items released this year that some of the categories are just too close to call.
“There may be other awards in angling, but these are the ones the nominees really want to win, and only you can help your favourites take the glory.
