SOME of the biggest names in British match fishing have secured their place in what could be the greatest-ever Zerofit SilverFish final line up in history.

Twelve nationwide qualifiers have taken place since the competition launched in October, with a mix of commercial fishery masters and England internationals already set to compete at the big final at Bradshaw Hall Fishery in March 2023.

And the fishing has been amazing too with over 200 20lb-plus weights recorded in the qualifiers so far, and there’s still chance for you to enjoy the action with eight more qualifiers remaining.

Some of the big hitters who have already made the final include England aces Cameron Hughes, Matt Godfrey, Adam Wakelin, Lee Kerry, Callum Dicks, and Jordan Holloway, with commercial experts Jamie Hughes and Zak Williams also through.

SilverFish competition creator, James Lewis, believes this season has already been one of the best on record.

He said: “We’re thrilled with the take-up this year on the qualifiers and, with the move to go purely silverfish only and away from F1s, we feel we’ve found a far better format for the competition.

“We already have some superstars through to the final but what’s also been noticeable is the broad range of anglers applying and we’ve also got plenty of club anglers making it too, each keen for that giant-killing performance and big payday.”
