NEW venue for Fish O’ final announced!

THIS year’s Fish O’Mania final will be held at Lincolnshire ‘bagging mecca’ Westwood Lakes.

It’s the first time in four years that the venue for the £50,000 match has changed, with Doncaster’s Hayfield Lakes hosting the most recent events.

The decision – which took many match anglers by surprise – was made jointly by Matchroom Sport, the Angling Trust and Sky TV. Dean Luker, Angling Trust Competitons, hopes the change will help to breathe new life into the high-profile event.

“The final will be on Falcon Lake, a horseshoe-shaped pool offering something different to Hayfield,” he said.

In addition to the change in venue, there will no longer be a separate Nxtgen event for young anglers. Instead, there will be a ‘golden ticket’ on offer to the winner of the Youth and Junior Nationals in 2022, granting them a spot in the Fish O’ final.

“This is an exciting change, offering a young angler a shot at one of fishing’s biggest events,” Dean added.
